Former BAM editor 

Bob Reichley is now 

its official 

"guardian angel. " 



The guy who wrote 'Ward 35' 

While many students of my era home on holi- 
days rushed out in search of high-school 
buddies, I remember plopping on the couch with a 
stack of Brown Aluiniii Montlih/s. For a magazine maven 
like me, having my parents receive the BAM was one 
of the better perks of my college years. 

I vividly remember one feature article from my 
freshman year, a January 1970 piece written by then- 
Editor Robert A. Reichley. "Ward 35" was the story of 
two young alumni gravely wounded in Vietnam who 
ended up occupying adjacent beds in Walter Reed 
General Hospital. As undergraduates, Al Vaskas '67 
and Tom Coakley '68 had been different as night and 
day - Vaskas was into literature and theater; Coakley, 
a varsity defenseman, lived and breathed hockey. On 
Ward 35, the two "shared the unusual kind of humor," 
Reichley wrote, "known only to those who have laughed 

in the face of tragedy, and drew strength from what they discovered they had in 
common." What they had in common, besides Vietnam and a lot of pain, was Brown. 

As Reichley told it, the roommates teased each other late at night with memories 
of fried clams at Tweet's and spaghetti at Smith's. Even with his digestive system 
blown apart in a mortar attack, the emaciated Vaskas craved food. In turn, Coakley 
recounted for his new friend the simple pleasures of walking to Meehan Auditorium 
to suit up for hockey games. Ambushed in Vietnam, Coakley had lost a leg. 

It was a great piece of reporting, a moving tour de force for Reichley the award- 
winning writer and editor. He left the magazine a year later to become associate 
vice president for University relations. Today 1 have his old job at the BAM, and Bob 
is my boss - but only for a few more weeks. Recently Bob announced he will retire 
at the end of this month (see Under the Elms). 

My predecessor, retired editor Robert "Dusty" Rhodes, and 1 ne\'er forgot how 
lucky we were to work for the guy who'd written "Ward 35." Even when we bridled 
at Reichley's occasional suggestion that we'd missed a story or had iieedlessly stuck 
our necks out. Dusty and I trusted Bob to defend the BAM's editorial independence. 
Other university editors envied our reporting to a man who never required us to 
submit a list of upcoming stories, who saw each issue of the BAM for the first time 
when the finished product landed on his desk, and who kept Monday-morning 
quarterbacking to a minimum. 

Once, ten or so years ago, some of us jokingly cast a hypothetical movie featuring 
the staff of University relations. We chose Ed Asner in "Lou Grant" mode - crusty, 
media-smart, avuncular - to play Bob. A perfectionist and a workaholic. Bob can be 
gruff and demanding. But he pushes his employees no more than he pushes him- 
self, and always out of an urge to ensure that everyone, everywhere, has the oppor- 
tunity to see how terrific Brown is. 

At an October meeting of the BAM's board of editors, chairman Ralph Begleiter 
'71 read a witty tribute and moved to name Bob Reichley this magazine's "Hon- 
orary Guardian Angel." The motion passed unanimously, with mucii applause. 
Consider it your next assignment, boss. And thanks. -A.D.

Let's have more God 

Editor: I'd like tii congratulate you for 
writing about students' attempts to fulfill 
the purpose of human life by finding God 
("To Struggle with God," September). 

At Brown, I engaged in my own 
search for God through Buddhist medi- 
tation, then TM (transcendental medi- 
tation), and finally, during a leave of 
absence, with the Hare Krishna devotees. 
The Hare Krishnas, often thought to be 
a cult, teach devotional service (bliakti) 
to God (Krishna), which has been prac- 
ticed in India for thousands of years. 
After six months in their temple in New 
York, I returned to Brown and completed 
my degree in computer science. In 1983 
I accepted spiritual initiation from 
Satsvarupa Dasa Goswami, the leading 
disciple of the movement's founder. 
Now I work with their Bhaktivedanta 
Institute, assisting in the research and 
promotion of books giving scientific 
arguments for the existence of the soul 
and God. As a result of mv de\'otional 
practices, I am convinced of the reality of 
God and am no longer subject to depres- 
sion or loneliness. 

In your article, I found Sultan Ander- 
son's Islamic devotion inspiring: "Every- 
thing you do is a way of worshiping 
Allah." Nicholas Lombardo's determi- 
nation to sacrifice family life to serve the 
greater family by leading them to God 
[as a Catholic priest] is glorious, as are 
his giving up frivolous sports and de- 



crying rampant hedonism. I wish him all 
success.

Let's have no God 

Editor. Linda Mahdesian's article under- 
scored the rich diversity of beliefs on the 
Brown campus. It is gratifying to know 
that Brown stucients do not make reli- 
gious commitments lightly. 



Conspicuous by their absence among 
those selected for interview, however, 
were any atheists or agnostics. According 
to some earlier sun'eys, almost one-third 
of the undergraduates (and two-thirds 
of the facultv) do not believe in God at 
all, making them a far larger group than 
any single religious denomination on 
campus. May we expect a follow-up 
article on those who have struggled with 
the concept of God - and won?

Let's have less rehgion 

Editor: As an atheist, secular humanist. 
Unitarian, and psychiatrist who could be 
comfortable with more "churches" but 
less religion, I know that social animals 
like us have an inborn need for safety 
and security even as we seek meaning 
and predictability. Thus, in part also 
because of a fear of death, America cur- 
rently has 1,763 "different" religions, 
most of which ha\'e discovered "The 
Truth." So I feel pity and concern for, as 
well as a fear of, those insecure, con-

fused, and easily-led souls who, perhaps 
like the famous (infamous) Chuck Col- 
son '53, are "Looking for God." I per- 
sonally heed and/or question the words 
of my guru above all gurus, Ivan Illich, 
a Jesuit priest. 

There can, of course, be beauty, 
inspiration, community, and humane 
support as one joins in fellowship. But I 
also note a longstanding history of dog- 
matic, divisive, repressive, coercive, 
acquisitive, guilt-provoking, delusional, 
racist, sexist, intolerant, condemnatory, 
and arrogant thinking combined with 
vicious wars based on theological differ- 
ences. Meanwhile, I also mention the 
obvious - that there's not one scintilla of 
empirical evidence supporting the idea 
that there exists any sort of higher 
power, Supreme Being, devil, mystery, 
final cause, or afterlife. 

Hoping beyond hope to be useful, 
and out of concern over raciical funda- 
mentalism, I urge all humanitarians to 
remember President John Adams, who 
once had the courage to say what I 
believe also: "This would be the best of 
all possible worlds if there were no reli- 
gion in it."

Where are the chaplains? 

Editor: I was appalled at the recent article, 
"To Struggle with God," not because so 
few students recognized their need, but 
for the lack of help from the supposedly 
Protestant chaplaincy. There is some 
evidence [in the article] that the Catholic 
chaplaincy and perhaps the Jewish 
chaplains are doing their jobs, but that is 
about it. 

Brown takes a great deal of pride in 
its academic achievements in this cen- 
tury, but when it lost its spiritual roots 
by abandoning the tradition of having a 
Baptist minister as president, it took a 
big step backward. Those men appreci- 
ated the importance of educating the 
spirit as well as the intellect. It is highly 
doubtful that any intellectual gain 
begins to compensate for the spiritual 
losses inflicted on the student body. 
This is painfully obvious to those of us 
who have come to know God despite 
the University's failure in this area. 

What really caused my heart to ache 
was the author's description of how 
she used to spend so much time writing 
arguments showing there is no God, and 
then cried herself to sleep because of 
the empty void she felt inside and the 
fact that the chaplains couldn't help her. 

I'm saddened by the Christian chap- 
la incv. Rebecca Wolfe may have learned 
about her Jewish heritage, but it is un- 
fortunate that the Christian chaplaincv 
could not show her Christ the Messiah 
and the living Torah. Bemiett Bullock 
certainly deserved more than an exposure 
to interfaith ciinners explaining to him 
the teachings of the world's religions. It 
is imfortunate that such a group as Inter- 
Varsity Christian Fellowship is not active 
at Brown to show these young people 
that the study of the scriptures can be 
both an intellectual and a spiritual expe- 
rience that can change their lives. 

George L. de Wolf '46 

Loudon, Tenn. 
Epigcopnl Chaplain David Ames replies: 
Mr. de Wolf has misinterpreted both 
Linda Mahdesian's article and the Brown 
chaplaincy. Linda didn't say the chap- 
lains couldn't help her. In fact, 1 remem- 
ber that she came to services on a regu- 
lar basis during her undergraduate days. 
Linda's testimony is about her struggle 
to find God in her life. Her vignettes of 
students from a variety of backgrounds 
are about their spiritual journeys. I do 
not think there is any justification for 
Mr. de Wolf's view that the entire reli- 
gious life at Brown is lacking and that 



the chaplains are not doing their jobs. 

Mr. de Wolf also says, "It is unfor- 
tunate that a group such as InterVarsity 
Christian Fellowship is not active at 
Brown." Well, it is. The BAM article 
even quotes Keith Cooper, a leader of 
the Brown chapter. 

During the last twenty years Brown 
has grown into a widely diverse and 
international university. Our task as 
chaplains is to make students aware of 
the variety of traditions here and, through 
constructive dialogue with those who 
share similar traditions and with those 
who are different, enable students to 
articulate and deepen their own faith 
commitments. Discussion, debate, chal- 
lenge, and pastoral support are all part 
of what it means to be a chaplain in 
today's multireligious campus setting. 
It is not our place to tell the Jew that she 
or he must convert to Christianity. It is 
our place to let God be God, and to ex- 
emplify in our own lives what it means 
to live justly, to love kindness, and to 
walk humbly with God. 



Let's keep looking 

Editor: While reading your well-written 
article, "To Struggle with God," 1 found 
myself drifting back to my own spiritual 
journey, which began at Brown. One 
day while walking on the Green during 
the second semester of my senior year, 
I recall this thought passing through my 
mind; "You've had a great education, 
perhaps the best in the world, and yet 
you've never read the Bible." As I recall, 
my mental response was, "Not now. 
Lord; I'm too busy." 

A year later, as a Marine officer sta- 
tioned in Okinawa, Japan, I had plenty of 
time on my hands and began to read 
the Bible. Over the next six years I read 
it regularly to determine if what it said 
was true. I finally decided it was true and 
became a Christian. I believe with all 
my heart that there is a God who loves 
all of us and desires that we all be recon- 
ciled to Him through his son, Jesus 
Christ. 

While I am pleased that the BAM 
devoted its September cover story to 
the subject of religion, I am troubled by 
one of the author's observations: "I had 
assumed there would be a tension be- 
tween the relativism of students' intellec- 
tual pursuits and the absolutism of their 
religious beliefs. Instead, they readily 
accept the belief buffet before them. . . ." 

Such a politically correct, relativistic 



6 / DECEMBER 1995 



view of God is not consistent with the 
scriptures of many religions. Tlie Bible, 
for example, is full of absolutes. While 
there /s truth that transcends the major 
religions - e.g., the Golden Rule - to be- 
lieve that the gods of all major religions 
coexist is really atheism; such a god 
does not and could not exist. We must 
be tolerant of everyone's right to believe 
as they choose, but we ought not to 
believe that everyone is right. 

I encourage the Brown community 
to pursue truth. If you're not willing to 
stake your life on what you believe, you 
need to keep "looking for God."

Let's ask how 

Editor: The article "To Struggle With God" 
describes some of the choices of mythol- 
ogy made by students. It would seem 
appropriate to add science to the discus- 
sion to encourage original thinking on 
the subject. The last decade has been 
exciting for biologists due to the explo- 
sive growth in the science of genetics 
and the study of the DNA molecule. An 
enormous amount has been learned 
about our past already. 

For starters I would suggest The Lan- 
guage of Genes by Steve Jones and Shad- 
ou's of Forgotten Ancestors by Carl Sagan 
and Arm Druyan. Both are very read- 
able. We note, however, biology does 
not answer Why questions, only How. 

Leo R. Kebort '4.7

God and grammar 

Editor: Is English taught at Brown? 1 was 
most appalled to read the interesting 
section on Bennett Bullock in your arti- 
cle, "To Struggle with God." He said: 
"All of these other people have wonder- 
ful religious traditions - I wish I was one 
of them. 1 wish I ims Catholic, I wish 
1 i('(7s Jewish, I wish I urns Muslim." (Ital- 
ics added.) 

This is the subjuncti\'e mood used to 
express a condition contrary to fact or a 
wish. Thus, it should have been written: 
"I wish I were one of them . . . (etc.)." 

I am not associated in any way with 
Brown, so I hope you do not take 
offense at this letter.

Photog in focus 

Editor: I've always felt that one of the 
reasons the Brown Alianni Monthly is 
such a standout is the photographv of 
John Foraste (Here & Now, September). 
He combines craftsmanship and artistry 
with great sensitivity. After all these 
years, it was wonderful to learn some- 
thing about him and see him in front of 
the camera.

Winter's tale 

Editor: Nice to read about mv classmate 
Bob Winter ("Multimedia Man," Octo- 
ber). Back when Bob was deciding to 
change from a history to a music major, 
he got into a discussion with my room- 
mate Geoff Golner '67. It ended in a 
challenge, with Bob claiming he could 
identify any piece of classical music 
Geoff could produce. 

The test came one Sunday afternoon 
when Geoff selected ten obscure pieces 
from his record collection and played 
them on my hand-built Heathkit stereo, 
using speakers enclosed in boxes care- 
fully constructed in the Brown physics 
labs. As I recall. Bob got eight of the ten 
right.

Editor: Thanks for vour superb piece on 
Bob Winter '67. During his senior year, 
as an undergraduate teaching assistant 
in the music department. Bob was our 
freshman section instructor for Professor 
Ron Nelson's course, "Tonal Harmonv 
and Modal Counterpoint." He was a 
great teacher then, and his work at 
UCLA now seems to be of a piece with 
his conscientious teaching of ear-train- 
ing at Brown. 

As a low-tech aging babv-boomer, 
1 was delighted to learn once and for all 
what the acronym "CD-ROM" really 
means.

Technical difficulties 

Editor: While I enjoyed the article on 
Robert Winter '67, 1 have a few points of 
constructive criticism. As someone 
employed in the computer industry, I am 
easily irritated by inaccuracies in main- 
stream media stories about technology. 
However, I understand that not every- 
one breathes this stuff. 

CD-ROMs are not inlierently inter- 
active, as the article suggests, any more 
than a floppy disk is. A CD-ROM can 
store more data than a disk, and often 
more than a hard drive, but data storage 
alone doesn't imbue it with any special 
power. 

What you're talking about in the 
article is multimedia and hypertext soft- 
ware. CD-ROMs' large capacities make 
them ideal for storing the data and the 
software for a multimedia application. 
Your description is akin to ascribing the 
ability to produce music to an audio 
disc itself. That ability lies with the CD 
player, the amplifier, and the speakers, 
without which the data on an audio 
CD is as inert as a CD-ROM without a 
computer. 

That said, I want to thank you for an 
extremely enjoyable and well-written 
article about an alumnus doing amazing 
things.

Editor: I was not surprised to read yet 
another defense of the University cur- 
riculum by President Gregorian ("Letter 
from the President," September). Nor 
was I surprised to read it described as "in 
step with the times." That is its greatest 
fault and the reason it invites criticism. 
I was a bit surprised by the self-satisfied 
tone of his remarks and his readiness 
to dismiss the "critics and detractors." 
I am not impressed by the observa- 
tion that Brown has finally realized the 
dream of Francis Wayland. The Roman- 
tics of that time were as wrong as are 
the Romantics of this time. Since we are 
a society that encourages self-absorp- 
tion, the University curriculum seems 
to be quite in step with contemporary 
culture. That does not recommend it to 
me and to many others. Students are 
invited in and told to work out their 
program for themselves. To use Robert 
Frost's phrase from another context, this 



is like asking students to play tennis 
without a net. 

I find nothing in Brown's approach 
that encourages the humility and sub- 
mission traditionally associated with 
being a student. Neither am I surprised 
that the advisement system continues to 
come in for criticism. The faculty do an 
indifferent job of advising students, just 
as the elders in the larger society are 
generally indifferent to the needs of the 
young as they pursue their own needs. 
We have the sad spectacle of the Self- 
Absorbed being guided by the Gener- 
ally Indifferent. 

The curriculum does not reflect a 
sound notion of a mature self. It encour- 
ages undergraduates to believe that self- 
discovery alone can lead to intellectual 
and moral maturity. Self-discovery does 
contribute to maturation, but it needs to 
be directed by the collective wisdom of 
others. The Brown curriculum ought to 
balance self-inquiry with externally- 
imposed requirements that reflect some- 
one else's wisdom. 

While 1 do not think of Brown as a 
"cultural sewer," 1 think it has lost its 
way and is squandering the opportunity 
to shape its student body into the truly 
elite citizens our society so desperately 
needs. 1 am grateful that some survive 
the contemporary Brown experience 
and, in spite of the faculty abdication of 
its responsibility, go on to lead 
admirable lives. I regret to say that 1 am 
not prepared to give the University 
credit for their success.

Gregorian's character 

Editor: Each time 1 read an issue of the 
BAM in which President Vartan Grego- 
rian has demonstrated his imderstanding, 
compassion, and leadership on various 
issues of the day, 1 have felt compelled to 
share my own insight into this man. 

After graduating from Brown, I 
attended the University of Pennsylvania 
Law School. Mr. Gregorian held the 
position of provost when I entered in the 
fall of 1978, and during my second year 
there he was named acting president 
of the university. 

At the law school, one of our most 
popular professors, who happened to be 
black, was being considered for tenure; 
there were no black tenured law faculty 
then. As usual, there were detractors 
who grasped the opportunity to prevent 



an extremely qualified person of color 
from obtaining his due reward, even 
though this man was supported by such 
distinguished people as Third Circuit 
Court of Appeals Judge Leon Higgin- 
botham, a member of Penn's board of 
overseers. 

Vartan Gregorian, however, was 
extremely outspoken on the issue and 
leveled criticism at some who opposed 
the appointment. After a prolonged bat- 
tle, the professor was granted tenure. 

At a time when opportunistic racism 
seems to flow so easily from many lips, 
I am glad Brown has the good fortune 
to have someone with the character of 
Vartan Gregorian to lead us forward.

Morality, continued 

Editor. In the fifty-five years since my 
graduation, I camiot remember the sub- 
ject of morality at Brown, or for that 
matter, anything else, creating such an 
outpouring of letters from alumni. It is 
obvious that a nerve was struck. I 
expressed my concerns to the adminis- 
tration, and received a long reply which 
greatly ameliorated my feelings and 
gave me a new respect for Brown. What 
was not addressed, however, is that 
Brown is perceived as being a permis- 
sive and unregulated school. With time 
and distance, one can see the forest 
without being confused by the trees. 

Sexual and social mores have 
changed in the last fifty years, and only 
time will tell if it is for the better. We 
have long underestimated the abilities 
of the young, but if one already knows 
what to do and how to do it, why spend 
four years and $100,000? Total maturity 
takes time, no matter how clever one 
is. I hope the present course of the Uni- 
versity will not tarnish two centuries 
of excellence.

Rudolf Haffenreffer 

Editor: 1 read with interest William F. 
Siem's reaction (Mail, September) to 
Anne Diffily's article, "The Heart Inter- 
est of Rudolf Haffenreffer" (May), based 
on a major exhibition at the Haffenreffer 
Museum of Anthropology and a cata- 
log. Passionate Hobln/: Rudolf Frederick 
Haffenreffer and tlie King Pliilip Museum. 



8 / DECEMBER 1995 



Among contributors to the overall effort 
were doctoral candidate in anthropology 
David Gregg, the exhibition's head cu- 
rator (quoted by both Diffilv and Siems), 
and a second student writing her disser- 
tation on historiography among contem- 
porary New England native people. 

We collectively debated the merits of 
the interpretive agenda favored by Mr. 
Siems, but rejected it and other currently 
fashionable ideas. We opted instead to 
make the time-honored attempt com- 
mon in both anthropology and history 
to comprehend people at the moment 
they lived and as they constructed their 
lives - in this instance, Rudolf Haffenr- 
effer's museum-building activity and 
his relations with native people in the 
context of their day. To wrench them 
from that context seemed to do injustice 
to all, not least to the writing of the past 
- and to Haffenreffer himself. 

We discovered that Rudolf Haffen- 
reffer harbored sentiments concerning 
native people decidedly unlike those of 
his neighbors and social acquaintances, 
but common enough in his day among 
Americans active in pan-Indian support 
movements or celebrating American 
Indians in poetry and literature. So the 
story of this industrialist's hobby is 
rather more complex than a brief BAM 
piece can possibly convey. 

We delight in debating these issues 
and hope Mr. Siems, whom we thank 
above all for his interest in taking the 
time to write, will order the catalog, join 
the Friends of the Haffenreffer Museum, 
and visit and talk to us at the museum 
next time he comes to Brown. If for what- 
ever reason he is unable to undertake 
that trip for several years, we invite him 
to visit us in our new quarters near cam- 
pus on Providence's South Main Street.

Treetops botany 

Editor: By the kindness of a friend who 
graduated from Brown, I saw a copy of 
the July Brown Alumni Monthly. In Nor- 
man Boucher's interesting piece on 
Nalini Nadkarni's exploits in tropical 
treetops ("The Evolution of Nalini Nad- 
karni"), he seems to promote the idea 
that treetop botany is a new development. 
Not so! 

My old friend, Colin Pittendrigh, for 



years at Princeton, was botanizing in 
tropical treetops fifty years ago on behalf 
of the Rockefeller Foundation. In the 
1940s he worked in Trinidad on the biol- 
ogv of epiphvtes, especially of bromeli- 
ads which provided breeding "tanks" 
for Anopheline mosquitos, transmitters 
of diverse nasty fevers. To get at the epi- 
phytic flora, he built rough scaffolding 
from wooden poles lashed together - 
rickety backyard jobs, to be sure, but 
they worked. Many a night he and his 
associates spent in the treetops, being 
bitten while catching and counting mos- 
quitos. I joined him on many field trips 
and, having general interests in the local 
epiphytes, climbed his shaky, swaying 
scaffolds on occasion. 

Dr. Pittendrigh did superb research 
on the bromeliads and produced a 
minor classic of tropical plant ecology. 
And no fancy engineering!

Mailer maelstrom 

Editor: In no way would I have believed 
it if someone had told me in i960, my 
senior year, that in 1995 I would read in 
the BAM that Norman Mailer, ali\-e and 
reasonably well, had spoken at Brown - 
at the invitation of the University (Elms, 
September). 

In i960 I was on the editorial board 
of the Brown Review of Literature, which 
published a quarterly magazine of stu- 
dent work and sponsored author read- 
ings. Fellow board member Richard 
Kostelanetz '62 announced at one of our 
weekly meetings that he had invited 
Norman Mailer to campus to speak. We 
were concerned, not only because we 
were accustomed to making these deci- 
sions as a group, but also because 
Mailer had recently caused a student 
riot while reading at Brandeis. Dick had 
in hand, however, a signed contract - 
with many clauses and conditions. (One 
of these was that there not be an organ in 
the room in which Mailer was to speak. 
Another was that, if there was a dinner 
in conjunction with the reading, there be 
no women present.) After discussion 
with our advisor. Professor of English 
John Hawkes, we decided we could not 
break the contract. 

At the reading I stood by the back 
door of the lecture hall in the psychology 
building. The place was packed. If there 
was a riot, I would be first out. The 
reading was raucous. Someone shouted

from the middle of the hall, asking 
Mailer to read the chow-line scene from 
The Naked and the Dead. Mailer read it; 
then, stepping from behind the lectern, 
he shouted, "Eat this." 

In the dark, I felt a firm grip on my 
upper arm. Dean Charles Watts, a mem- 
ber of the English faculty, was irate. 
"You people are going to pay for this," 
he said. I left, but Revieii' editor Peter 
Prentice '61 later filled me in on the rest 
of the evening. Mailer, he said, kept 
mumbling about knives as symbols of 
his manhood. They adjourned to a 
downtown bar, where Mailer left with a 
sailor who said he was a bookbinder. 

That evening was discussed at 
Brown for days afterwards in dorm 
rooms, the Gate, the Blue Room. 
Clearly, we all agreed. Mailer was fin- 
ished, over the hill, done in from mixing 
drugs and alcohol. Professor Hawkes 
attempted to put some perspective on 
Mailer's garbled rambling, pointing out 
the dangers of premature glory for an 
artist, the impact of World War II on 
Mailer's psyche, and Mailer's battle- 
ground metaphor for life. Hawkes was 



not as pessimistic as we were about the 
author's future, but several nights later 
Mailer stabbed his wife and was com- 
mitted to a psychiatric hospital. 

The following year Dilys Winn '61 
took a temporary job helping Mailer 
organize his personal library. We begged 
her to quit, but she assured us he was 
a very sweet person. Long before he 
wrote Tlw Executioner's Song, I concluded 
that Mailer's brain had not been irre- 
versibly pickled. Calculating from the 
September BAM reference, which de- 
scribes him as age seventy-two, I figure 
he was thirty-seven in i960.

Bruno was a lady 

Editor: Peter Mackie raised the subject of 
the bronze bear's gender in a September 
letter to the BAM. I would like to point 
out that the first live bear mascot to rep- 
resent Brown was a female. It was not 
planned that way. In 1903, one year after 
the bear was declared to be Brown's 



official mascot, arrangements were made 
to rent a male bear named Dinks to take 
to the Dartmouth game. Unfortunately, 
Dinks would not go willingly, so in a 
last-minute substitution his mate Helen 
was borne off to Springfield, where she 
performed valiantly. 

Bruno III, acquired in 1936, was also 
a female bear. She lost her job after she 
climbed a tree at Brown Stadium and 
would not come down. 

Since the bronze Bruno has made his 
way from Marvel Gym to the College 
Green, along with his inscription on 
how emulating the fine qualities of the 
bear will "make men invincible," per- 
haps we might erect a sculpture of the 
valiant Helen. Several years ago the 
University Archives received, among 
memorabilia collected by Alfred Clatlin 
'06, a photograph of Helen taken at the 
Dartmouth game in 1905. As bears go, 
she was fairly attractive. 

Mr. Mackie also ponders the question 
of names for the women's teams. "Lady 
Bears" is not distinctive, although I have 
heard an even less acceptable version 
used by a local radio newscaster report-

Missing the point 

Editor: When the BAM published my let-

land, it was edited in such a wav that my 
main point was lost. I argued that if one

about 20 percent of the population.

Bruce Lindsay 

Editor: When I read protests concerning 
subject matter in the BAlM, I wonder why 
nothing was ever written about Profes- 
sor Robert Bruce Lindsay ['20], head of 
the physics department and dean of the 
Graduate School. When he died there 
were tributes from around the world, 
but nothing from Brown. 

Professor Lindsay loved Brown. 
When he lived abroad, he hung a Brown 
banner in his study. Yet Brown contin- 
ues to ignore him. Since I never took 
physics, 1 cannot praise the w-ork that 
made him famous. I knew him only as 
the warm, witty father of my friend.

long obittian/ for Professor Lindsay, who 
died the previous month. Prof. Lindsay 
served as dean of the Graduate School from 
1954 until his retirement in ig66, and dur- 
ing those years the school grew into national 
prominence and doubled its enrollment. 
The April and July ig66 issues of the BAM 
contained extensive coverage of Dean Lind- 
say's achievements upon the occasion of 
his retirement, and the September 1969 
issue included a revieiv of his newly-pub- 
lished book on physics. In igyS Brozvn 
awarded Prof. Lindsay an honorary doctor- 
ate of science. A year before his death, the

UNDER THE 

ELMS 



I hese are confusing 
JL times for doctors and 
patients. Insurance compa- 
nies, pressured by large 
employers to slow the 
growth of medical-insur- 
ance premiums, have increas- 
ingly nudged people into 
health maintenance organiza- 
tions (HMOs) and other 
forms of "managed care." 
New specialists are finding 
themselves without jobs, 
while the less-expensive gen- 
eral practitioner is back in 
fashion. "If you go into radi- 
ology today," says Donald 
Marsh, dean of Brown's 
medical school, "there's a 
substantial chance you won't 
find work. This is a major 
historical trend." 

At first glance. Brown 
appears well-positioned for 
this radically transformed 
world. A recent report by the 
Association of American 
Medical Colleges reveals that 
28 percent of medical-school 
seniors in the U.S. now choose 
general or family practice 
residencies, up from a record 
low of 15 percent only three 
years ago. Among prestigious 
universities. Brown has been 
a leader in giving students 
hands-on training in primary 
care. In 1991, for example, 
U.S. News & World Report 
ranked Brown the top "com- 
prehensive" medical school 
in the country, partly because 
of its strong family medicine 
department. 

Brown's reputation will 
probably be further bolstered 
next fall, when a revamped 
curriculum goes into effect 
after five years of study. The 
approach will finetune the 
balance between nitty-gritty 



Imbalance of Care 

Improving health care means more than 
M reducing an oversupply of specialists 







CHK15TOPHFR BING 



science and more nebulous 
concerns such as medical 
ethics and doctoring's social 
effects. Other medical schools 
are already examining it as a 
possible model. 

It's no surprise, then, that 
applications to the medical 
school have more than dou- 
bled since the late 1980s, 
attracting such students as 



Aggie Hernandez '92, '96 
M.D., who decided to become 
a family phvsician during an 
asthmatic childhood, when 
her doctor magically soothed 
her ragged breathing. "That's 
what my concept of medicine 
is," Hernandez says. "That 
anyone can walk into my 
office and 1 can do something 
to help them." 



Yet Associate Dean for 
Medical Education Stephen 
Smith cautions that the Uni- 
versity's reputation in family 
medicine and other forms of 
primary care is mislead- 
ing. Smith reports that 
Brown's output of gen- 
eral practitioners is "aver- 
age." State schools, bound 
by law to produce primary- 
care physicians, often "put 
the full-court press" on their 
students to practice general 
medicine, he says, and the 
University's program is far 
more balanced than is widely 
acknowledged. Although 
Brown graduates begin gen- 
eral residencies at a rate 
twice the national average, 
the school's own studies 
show that many decide to 
enter more lucrative speciali- 
ties later. "Primary care has 
never been our [sole] mis- 
sion," Smith says. 

By framing the current 
health-care debate as a strug- 
gle between general practice 
and specialization, pundits 
miss a more fundamental 
point. According to Smith, 
what's needed - and what 
Brown tries to provide - are 
"socially responsible physi- 
cians," no matter what their 
specialty. Market forces are 
now adjusting the prciportion 
of general practitioners to 
specialists, a balancing act 
that, according to Marsh, may 
take another decade. What 
the market can't do is empha- 
size the human and social 
imphcations of any kind of 
practice, whether pediatrics 
or cardiology. It's this union 
of efficiency and caring that 
Brown's medical school aims 
tofulfill. -/.S. and N.B,

Crossing paths 



I he O.J. Simpson verdict 
_1_ and Louis Farrakhan's 
Million Man March polarized 
much ot the country this fall, 
highlighting the deep di\i- 
sion that still exists between 
blacks and whites. Yet among 
a small group of Brown un- 
dergraduates, the opposite 
happened. 

Eight black and eight 
white Jewish students spent 
an October weekend in Wash- 
ington, D.C., trying to forge a 
relationship between two 
communities whose campus 
paths seldom cross. Calling 
themselves the Black-Jewish 
Understanding Project, the 



students set out to learn about 
each other's culture. Together 
they visited the Holocaust 
Museum and Baltimore's 
Great Blacks in Wax Museum; 
attended services at a syna- 
gogue and an A.M.E. Zion 
church; and met with the Na- 
tional Black Caucus of State 
Legislators, the Jewish Reli- 
gious Action Committee, 
and several other groups. 
Then they talked - about 
Zionism, affirmative action, - 
Farrakhan. "We didn't 
dance around any issue," 
says Erica Taylor '97, one of 
the weekend's leaders. 
The trip, as well as the 





Novel approach 

■ arole Maso, the creative writing program's new director, 

^-1 ^ had a tough time finding a publisher for her first book, 
Ghosi Dance. She refused to cut any of its 800 pages or di\'ide 
them into chapters. In her second novel, Tlie Ar\ Lover, she sup- 
plemented the text with paintings, drawings, and missing-pet 
posters she tore off telephone poles. 

For almost a decade after graduating from Vassar, Maso 
waited tables, modeled for artists, taught fencing, and worked 
nights as a legal assistant - all to support her writing. The 
years have also brought five novels, a teaching stint at Colum- 
bia, and several prestigious literary grants. 

Maso never attended graduate school, for fear she'd try sat- 
isfying her teachers instead of herself. Now as a teacher she 
hopes to help students find their own voices. She accepted the 
invitation to join Brown because "without doubt, this is the 
most innovative, cutting-edge program in the coimtry," she says, 
"dedicated to the avant-garde and all that is not necessarily 
commercial. It's a good match for me because that's where my 
interests lie." - Linda ]. P. Maltdesian '82 



formal organiza- 
tion that coalesced 
around it, was the 
brainchild of Jenny 
Sherling '97, a white 
Jewish student who 
in high school had 
participated in pro- 
grams that brought 
blacks and Jews 
together. When she 
called the Third 
World Center dur- 
ing her sophomore 
year at Brown to try 
to launch a similar 
idea, Taylor re- 
turned her call. 

Neither woman believes 
widespread racial tension 
exists on campus. But in 
dorms, in dining halls, and at 
parties, they see significant 
social bountiaries between 
blacks and whites and, specif- 
ically, between blacks and 
Jews. To begin breaking down 
these boundaries, Sherling 
and Taylor brainstormed 
and solicited donations for 
nearly a year. Their goal for 
the Washington weekend 
was ne\er to create a bunch 
of hand-holding best friends, 
but to "dispel the ignorance 
that exists in segregated com- 
munities," Taylor explains. 
The group's members be- 
lieve that acknowledging and 
addressing prejudice now 
will make them more open- 
minded later, as they launch 
careers and raise children.

BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY / 13 



SCHOOL FOR SCAN- 
DAL" blared the March 
12, 1986, front page of the 
New York Post in two-inch- 
high letters. The next day Bob 
Reichley faced a room packed 
with reporters and TV cam- 
eras, all focused on the sensa- 
tional reports that two Brown 
undergraduate women had 
been implicated in a Provi- 
dence prostitution scheme. 

"I approach this news 
conference with a sense of un- 
disguised anger," began 
Brown's official spokesman, 
brandishing the Post. "This, 
gentlemen, is what I'm talk- 
ing about." He ended his 
remarks with a ringing affir- 
mation: "We are an educa- 
tional institution - a damn 
good one." As the Providence 
journal noted recently, the 
moment was "vintage Reich- 
ley" - upfront, blunt, and 
passionate. 

Passion is a word that 
crops up often when you talk 
to Executive Vice President 
for Alumni, Public Affairs, and 
External Relations Robert A. 
Reichley about his work. 



Retiring, never shy 

Brown's most visible spoiicsman 
turns off the mike 




Whether day or night, good news or bad, 

for almost three decades reporters covering Brown events 

have turned to Reichley. 



From the start, he says, alumni 
education has been "a pas- 
sion with me." The result, for 
almost thirty years, has been 
a groundbreaking alumni 
program founded on contin-

of the Institute for International Studies. 



ued learning - a common- 
place approach today, but 
novel in the early 1970s, 
when only Brown and a few 
other schools sent out faculty 
to alumni gatherings. 

Even Reichley's friends 
invoke the p-word. His dead- 
pan manner "belies his pas- 
sion" for the University, says 
Providence rabbi Les Gutter- 
man. "He views [his work] 
almost as a religious mission." 

T7 . .. . 

W~^ ver smce arnvmg m 
' ' 1968 as the first new 
editor of the BAM in thirty- 
eight years, Robert A. Reich- 
ley has been Brown's most 
visibly consistent link to the 
world outside the Van Wickle 
Gates. Whether the news was 
good or bad - through new 
presidents (he's worked for 
four) and football coaches, 
through suicide pills and the 
latest ruling on the Title IX 
athletics case - Reichley's tele- 
phone has rung at all hours 
of the day or night. 

Now, at age sixty-eight, 
Reichley says he has tired of 
"answering the bell every 
time it rings." He retires from 



his current position on 
December 31, but at Presi- 
dent Gregorian's urging, he 
will return in February as the 
part-time Secretary of the 
University, working on pro- 
jects with Gregorian, Chan- 
cellor A.O. Way '51, and the 
Brown Corporation. 

A former newspaper 
reporter and sports editor in 
York, Pennsylvania, Reichley 
was director of public rela- 
tions at Culver Military 
Academy (and editor of its 
award-winning alumni mag- 
azine) before becoming the 
first non-alumnus to edit the 
BAM. When applicant Reich- 
ley was told that the maga- 
zine was considering only 
Brown alumni for the position, 
"I wrote back," he recalls, 
"and said, 'I'm sorry to hear 
that. I thought we all got 
over that when Notre Dame 
hired a Presbyterian to coach 
its football team.' " That sar- 
donic and sports-oriented 
quip - vintage Reichley - got 
him the job. 

Reichley immediately 
found himself in the heart of 
a maelstrom. "In December 
the black students walked 
out," he recalls. "In January 
we got coed dorms. In Febru- 
ary, the faculty were debat- 
ing ROTC. hi April the New 
Curriculum was approved. 
In May, President Heffner 
quit." The magazine, he says, 
became "a tremendous light- 
ning-rod for all alumni dis- 
content in those years." 

In 1971, that discontent 
was partly responsible for 
the University's creating 
Reichley's next job, associate 
vice president for University 
relations, but not before the 
American Alumni Council 
had named Reichley's BAM 
the best alumni magazine in 
the country. Reichley left 
editing, he said at the time, 
because the BAM "is one 
important . . . way of commu- 
nicating with alumni, but it 
can only be one part of a full- 
scale, coordinated program 
of communications if we're

to get the job done. 1 simply 
want a crack at the bigger 
problem." 

He got it. The first 
challenge was the 
Pembroke-Brown merger in 
1971. "One of my first tasks 
was to combine all external 
[alumni] staff and programs," 
Reichley remembers. "I have 
my bulletproof shirt to prove 
it." Despite the difficulties, 
he shifted the focus of alumni 
programming to education, 
founding what became the 
Continuing College for alumni 
and starting the Summer 
College. 

Reichley then "worked 
progressively through media 
relations, special events, and 
most recently, government 
and community relations. It 
took some time." Along the 
way he was instrumental 
in bringing to campus speak- 
ers such as Jordan's King 
Hussein and Israel's Shimon 
Peres for the Stephen A. 
Ogden Memorial Lectures, 
and helped found the annual 
Brown University /Pruc'/rft'Ha' 
journal Public Affairs Confer- 
ence. He also raised the 
money to transform a vacant 
house into tociay's Maddock 
Alumni Center and estab- 
lished its $i-milIion mainte- 
nance endowment. Reichley 
was promoted to vice presi- 
dent in 1977 and to executive 
vice president in 1990, a year 
after Vartan Gregorian's 
arrival. 

As passionate about sports 
and music as he is about 
Brown, Reichley takes special 
pride in the orchestra concert 
series he helped establish in 
1977. "People said no workl- 
class musician would play 
with a non-conservatory stu- 
dent orchestra," Reichley 
recalls with a smirk. "But 
Mstislav Rostropovich came, 
and then all the rest" - in- 
cluding Isaac Stern, Marilyn 
Home, and Wynton Marsalis 
- "and each [concert] has 
been a testimonial to the qual- 



ity of Brown students. These 
kids are not music majors, for 
the most part, but they play 
well enough to keep up with 
world-class soloists." 

His unshakable pride in 
Brown's excellence has kept 
the job fresh and urgent. "I 
remember when I saw Bob at 
his very happiest," recalls 
Les Gutterman. "We had 
lunch the day [in July 1993] 
after he came back from Eng- 



land, where he watched the 
Brown crew win at Henley. 
Bob was so impressed with 
the fact that crew was the 
ultimate team sport. There 
were no heroes; the team was 
the hero. That's the metaphor 
for how he sees Brown at its 
best. He sees it as a place 
where the parts mesh, and 
everyone gets the credit." 
Now, as he retires to a 
less hectic life with wife Sara 



and a frisky English setter 
named Henley, to the prospect 
of visits with his four chil- 
dren and five grandchildren. 
Bob Reichlev may have to let 
go of that metaphor a bit and 
take some credit for three 
decades' worth of extraordi- 
nary innovation and leader- 
ship. He's an educational 
institution - a damn good one.

James Mcllwaui, a polymath

professor of medicine and 
chair of the medieval studies

three familiar gates around the 
Brown campus. What is each 
called and where is it found? 
Answers are on page 18. 




BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY / 15 



Sex, American style 



T 

I alking to Edward Lau- 
JL mann about sex is seri- 
ous business, but who can 
resist the lurid details? Lau- 
mann, the George Herbert 
Mead Distinguished Service 
Professor of Sociology at the 
University of Chicago, last 
year published The Social 
Organization of Sexuality, 
which summarized the find- 
ings of what the New York 
Times Bool< Review called "the 
most important study of 
American sexual behavior 
since the Kinsey reports of 
1948 and 1953." Laumann 
was still talking about Amer- 
ican mating habits during a 
two-day campus visit in 
November. 

Laumann's interest in sex 
stems from his conviction 
that sociology can best explain 
what are widely perceived as 
medical or epidemiological 
problems. Take AIDS, for 
example. Predictions that the 
disease could spread in epi- 
demic proportions are based 
mostly on the biological 
ease with which the virus is 
transmitted. But Laumann 
believes that, if you can fig- 
ure out who's doing what to 
whom, you can figure out 
which populations are truly 
at risk for getting AIDS. This 
in turn allows public health 
officials to design and target 
more effective prevention 
programs. Or as Laumann 
puts it: "To the medical com- 
munity one liver's as good as 
any other, where I think it 
may make a difference where 
that liver's been." 

In his survey, Laumami 
and his staff inters'iewed 
3,432 people about their sex 
lives. What they found was a 
more sexually ctmservative 
populace than previous 
researchers had noted. (Too 
conservative, according to 
some critics, who have charged 
that the survey underreports 
homosexuals.) More than 80 



Sociologist Edward 

Laumann's research suggests 

that the controversial 

"sexual revolution " of the 

last quarter-century is 

fundamentally about changes 

in premarital sex. 



percent of the interviewees 
had either one or no sexual 
partner during the previous 
year; for married people the 
figure was 96 percent. 

In addition to comforting 
social conservatives - who 
managed to get Laumann's 
federal funding for the study 
cut off, forcing him to reduce 
his sample size from the 
20,000 he'd originally wanted 
- such figures suggest that 
having multiple partners and 
therefore increasing the risk 
of contracting AIDS is a rela- 
tively unusual thing. In addi- 
tion, sexual practices in the 
United States are fairly bal- 
kanized: People tend to live 
and socialize with others who 
have similar mating habits, 
so that high-risk behavior is 
usually confined. "Even if 
you have multiple partners," 
Laumann says, "they come 
from the same 'island.' If a 




sexually transmitted disease 
gets established there, it's 
probably not going to spread 
far. Of course, it can wipe out 
the island." 

Laumann's survey 
found that when it 
comes to sex, men and 
women still have little 
in common. "Here we 
have two subpopula- 
tions who live in close 
intimacy for most of 
their lives," Laumann 
says, "but there are 
profound differences in 
how they perceive the 
shared activity." This 
can have disturbing 
consequences. "Twenty- 
two percent of women 
report they have been 
forced to have sex 
when they didn't want 
to," Laumann explains. 
"But onlv three percent 
of the men said they 
had forced somebody." 



Before social conserva- 
tives derive too much com- 
fort from Laumann's study, 
however, they should know 
that his most recent work, on 
teen sex, demonstrates that 
people who became adults 
before 1970 have considerably 
different mating habits from 
those who came of age after 
that date. In 1950, people 
married at the average age of 
twenty-two, a record low; 
now they marry much later, 
at twenty-six, but begin 
"cohabitating" at twenty-two. 
At the same time, women now 
reach puberty at age thirteen, 
a number that's been going 
down three or four months 
every decade. 

"People now are in sexual 
maturity for thirteen years 
before they get married," 
Laumann says. In retrospect, 
he concludes, "The sexual 
revolution is about premari- 
tal sex." -N.B. 



Madam Ambassador 



When you give away 
half your money," 
U.S. Ambassador to Austria 
Swanee Hunt told her audi- 
ence at Andrews Hall on 
November 14, "you get inter- 
ested in how to do it - [how 
to] do more good than harm. 
I decided 1 would try to affect 
the lives of girls and women." 

Hunt, heir to the H.L. 
Hunt oil fortune and wife of 
symphony conductor Charles 
Ansbacher '65, has long been 
known around Denver as a 
philanthropist, activist, and 
artist. But since becoming the 
Austrian ambassador two 
years ago, she's been direct- 
ing her concern and energy 
toward Europe. In addition to 
her everyday diplomatic 
duties, she has helped funnel 
humanitarian support to the 
countries of the former 
Yugoslavia. 

Out of her tra\'els to 
Croatia, Slovenia, and Bosnia 



has come the Vienna Women's 
Initiative, which seeks to help 
women become involved in 
the emerging 
democracies 
of Central 
Europe. Hunt 
has met with 
scores of 
women and 
has set up 
seminars and 
networks to 
allow them 
to make sure 
their perspec- 
tives are not 
excluded 
from the new 
European political map. In 
the process she's had her 
own perspective sharpened. 
When she asked a Sarajevo 
architecture professor if she 
could send back issues of 
Architectural Digest, the reply 
was "What we really need 
are pencils." - C.G.

Title: Professor of psychiatry and 
human behavior; adjunct professor of 
psychology; director of chronobiology 
at E.P. Bradley Hospital, Providence. 

Education: B.A., Gettysburg College; 
Ph.D., Stanford. 

Specialty: Adult and adolescent sleep 
patterns. 



People complnin they're uiorking more and 
sleeping less. How did this happen ? 

One of the reasons is our conversion to a 
twenty-four-hour society, which began 
around World War II. Tlie estimates are 
that 15 or 20 percent of the workforce 
now work nontraditional hours instead 
of a nine-to-five day. I can get a package 
to California by tomorrow, but some- 
body's got to stay up all night to get it 
there. 

There is also this ethic that we're 
stronger than our need to sleep. People 
think they're showing loyalty and effort 
by ignoring their biological need. The 
most poignant example, for me, is the 
Challenger tragedy. The shuttle people 
preparing for that launch were pulling 
double shifts. The Challenger commis- 
sion report indicated a possible relation- 
ship between their lack of sleep and the 
impaired judgment that led to disaster. 

Hoiu does lack of sleep affect our non- 
working lives? 

Sleep may play a major role in, among 
other things, regulating mood and emo- 
tion. Most studies done on sleep depri- 
vation look at performance, ability to 
think, reaction time. But you can specu- 



A prominent sleep researcher says 
staying awake may be overrated 




late about the other consequences on soci- 
ety: increased violence, increased divorce 
rates, an increase in the homicide rate. 
Sleep deprivation is not the root cause of 
these problems, but the extent to which it 
contributes may be underestimated. 

Is there a minimum amount of sleep uv 
should be getting? 

The need for sleep varies like most bio- 
logical functions, but you can fit the dif- 
ferences among virtually all adults in 
about an hour's span. It's likely that peo- 
ple who, in casual conversation, say 
they're fine on four or five hours a night 
have been acculturated to not value 
sleep or what sleep does for them. Or 
they're supplementing their waking 
activity with stimulants such as caffeine 
and nicotine. 

People are not good at perceiving 
their own sleep debt. Someone may say 
they got four hours of sleep and they're 
fine, but if you put them in a low-stimu- 
lus environment, like a warm classroom 
at 4 P.M., they will struggle mightily. But 
if they make it a point to get eight-and- 
a-half hours of sleep every night for a 
week or two, it's as if somebody with 
astigmatism finally gets glasses. There's 
a new clarity in how they perceive the 
world. 

At what age does this sleep-deprivation 
habit begin ? 

We're studying kids in ninth grade whose 



school starts at 8:30 
A.M.; next year they'll 
be in tenth grade, 
when classes start at 
7:15. School adminis- 
trators say all tenth- 
graders have to do is 
go to bed an hour 
earlier. Well, asking 
fifteen-year-olds to 
go to bed an hour 
earlier is pretty much 
untenable. They end 
up losing sleep. 

You see this prob- 
lem in uni\'ersities 
and high schools and 
even some junior high schools. Little 
kids are still protected by an ethic that 
yovmg children need sleep, although 
some parents seem to be keeping their 
kids up later to get quality time with 
them after work, then waking them up 
earher to get them to preschool or day 



Ho^o can ice turn this trend around? 

We need a heightened awareness that 
sleep affects us, as does the lack of sleep, 
and that our ability to function is im- 
paired during certain times of the day. 
At the same time, we can't turn back the 
clock. We can't say to Federal Express, 
"Sorry, no more next-day deliveries 
because you can't have your pilots fly- 
ing the backside of the clock." What we 
can do is to find ways to limit what is 
allowable. 

For example, airline pilots get jetlag 
from flying across multiple time zones; 
they're also flying at times that may not 
be the best biologically. Regulations 
now say no sleeping in the cockpit. Well, 
sleep happens. And when flight crews 
are able to take naps - not all crew mem- 
bers at once, obviously - their perfor- 
mance and alerhiess improve. 

We've got to get beyond the idea 
that we can do anything anytime. Most 
of us can't.

Safety alert 




Students living off-campus got a scare on the morning of 
October 20, when a twenty-four-year-old Brown medical 
student was raped in her apartment near Wayland Square. 
The assailant barricaded the woman in her bathroom and set 
fire to the apartment before fleeing. Providence firefighters 
found her suffering from smoke inhalation minutes later. 

That evening. Brown Police and Security distributed a flyer 
warning students to keep their doors and windows locked, 
and to use shuttlebus and "safewalk" services at night. Andrew 
Kim '93, coordinator of special services for police and security, 
reported a "discernible increase" in the use of the department's 
escort service for students and faculty going off campus. 

As of late November, no suspect had been arrested. 
Although both Providence and University police officials char- 
acterized the rape as "isolated," Kim says it can't hurt to ham- 
mer warnings into the minds of students, particularly since 
eight assaults of various kinds have already been reported to 
campus police this semester - compared to three for all of last 
year. "There's no need for paranoia," he says, "but most peo- 
ple never think about safety until it's compromised." - J.S.

TED DEWAN '83 



MV dad sells caskets. 
1 don't mean pine 
boxes like the one Arise 
Bundren carried Addie to Jef- 
ferson in, but shinv bronze 
and steel ones, with quilted 
blankets and embroidered 
flowers. My friends used 
to ask me, "Sarah, what does 
your dad do?" I'd vank on 
my ponytails, bite mv lip, and 
say, "Oh, he works for Bates- 
ville. It's a division of Hillen- 
brand." There was no getting 
around Parent's Career 
Day in third grade, though. 
Kymra's dad passed out red 
plastic fire hats. Katie's 
pinned tin sheriff badges on 
our shirts. What was my dad 
going to do? Pass out wood 
samples? The thought of him 
sharing tales about crema- 
tions gone awry or the newest 
embalming tecliniques made 
me want to take a permanent 
trip to the quiet corner where 
the wild things were. 

Like it or not, I've been 
involved in the funeral busi- 
ness since I could write. I've 
always had pens from Whit- 
comb Funeral Home and 
notepads from Lambert and 
Lambert Since 1851. When 
Mr. Kenney from Kenney's 
Funeral Home used to call in 
his casket orders, I'd write 



Death in the family 

When Dad's the last to let you down 



down Pembroke Cherry or 
A-21 Neapolitan Blue. He 
always had a service coming 
up, so I had to underline 
"urgent" on mv dad's message 
pad. Things in the funeral 
business happen quickly, and 
I was part of the emergency 
response team. 

Until I was ten, my room 
was decorated in a Straw- 
berry Shortcake theme; I 
wanted my dad to design 
Strawberry Shortcake caskets. 
My brother wanted the G.I. 
Joe motif. It ne\er occurred 
to us that this was kind of a 
sick request. Evenings we 
often helped Dad sort through 
pictures of caskets to present 
to funeral home directors: 
steel blue caskets in one pile, 
shinv mahogany in another. 
One Saturday morning I 
wrapped myself up in a peach 
quilt for "Ghostbusters" and 
"Superfriends," turning 
ghostly white when 1 realized 
my new blanket was de- 
signed for lining a casket. But 
death was never black suits 
or dreary organ music. It was 
company trips to Florida and 



Dad's jokes: "We're the last 
to let you down." 

We're an odd group of 
kids, we children of casket 
salesmen. Since I don't seem 
to fit into any other category 
- White Anglo Saxon Protes- 
tants are in the dog house 
these da)'s - maybe I'll form 
a support group called Koffin 
Kids. We could discuss cas- 
ket sales as an economic indi- 
cator: as incomes decline, 
cremations go up. We could 
divulge the best hide-and- 
go-seek spots in the local em- 
balming room, or recall 
encounters with gray-haired 
ladies taking long, peaceful 
naps in the sitting room. 
"How long is she going to try 
that casket out for, Dad?" 

Having caskets around 
all the rime makes death seem 
like a pleasant, accommodat- 
ing roommate. It also takes 
the myster\' out of existential- 
ist pursuits. Angst-riddled 
twentieth-century philoso- 
phers should spend more rime 
reading Funeral Directors

BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY / 19 



Sports 

By James Reinbold 



I 



Champions! 

Water polo and men's soccer 

show winning grit - 

with or without varsity status. 



When, facing budget 
cuts, the athletic 
department stripped men's 
water polo of its varsity sta- 
tus in 1991, it nearly drained 
the life out of one of Brown's 
winningest men's programs. 
The team, however, vowed 
to become successfully self- 
reliant - a vow that culmi- 
nated in capturing the Ivy title 
this year. 

Second-year head coach 
Erik Farrar '83, who was assis- 
tant coach during the 1991 
cuts, remembers the disap- 
pointment he felt four years 
ago. "Not only did we have 
to fund ourselves overnight" 
by relying more heavily on 
sympathetic alumni, he says, 
"we also had none of the 
facilities privileges of varsity 
athletes. We lived with the 
sword of Damocles directly 
overhead." 

The scjuad had one impor- 
tant advantage; It was used 
to winning, thanks largely to 
the leadership of Ed Reed, 
who coached swimming for 
twenty-three years and water 
polo for twenty before becom- 
ing director of aquatics at 
the University of Alabama in 
1994. Reed fashioned what 
might have been the best 
men's water polo team in the 
East. His teams, consistently 
ranked just below the power- 
ful West Coast schools, made 
eleven NCAA tournament 
appearances and won almost 
two dozen championships: 
eighteen New Englands and 
four Easterns. 



After a disastrous 1992 
season, the team's pride bore 
fruit. "The 1993 team shirt 
bore the motto, 'Still the 
Best,' " Farrar says, "and the 
team played like desperate 
men." This squad went 22-5, 
winning the Northerns and 
beating ninth-ranked Long 
Beach State in the Northern 
California tournament; the 
season was tarnished only by 
a fifth-place finish in the 
Easterns. Last year, Farrar's 
first as head coach, the team 
finished third in the Easterns 
and forced a sudden-death 
playoff game with Navy for 
an NCAA tournament spot. 
"We played our best, but so 
did they," Farrar says. "We 
lost by two." 

This year Brown once 
again founciered in the East- 
erns, finishing seventh. But 
Ivy League play was a differ- 
ent story. Perhaps in no other 
sport is the Ivy rivalry more 
intense, particularly with 
Princeton and Harvard. So 
when Brown won the Ivy 
League Championship - and 
the bragging rights that go 
with it - this fiercely competi- 
tive team regained the sweet 
respect it has long deserved. 

After winning fourteen 
of fifteen games, in- 
cluding a victory over number- 
two-ranked UCLA, men's 
soccer entered the final two 
games of the season ranked 
third nationally and poised to 
finish the season in a burst of

glory. Instead they dropped 
a 2-1 decision to Hartwick in 
New York, then lost, again 
2-1, to Cornell at Stevenson 
Field. The Cornell defeat was 
the most crushing, for it 
denied Brown an automatic 
bid to the NCAA tournament. 
Instead, for the second year 
in a row the Bruins were Ivy 
cochampions and the recipi- 
ents of an NCAA at-large 
invitation. Despite this disap- 
pointment, the team is the 
first to win back-to-back Ivy 
titles since Columbia did it in 
the mid-1980s. 

The Cornell loss was little 
more than a stumble. At 
Stevenson Field on Novem- 
ber 19, the squad became the 
first Brown soccer team ever 
to win fifteen games in a 
season as it beat the Boston 
University Terriers, 2-1, in 
the first round of the NCAA 
tournament. The first point 
was scored by Gary Hughes

Advertisers Enroll in Ivy League Network 




When General Motors' Chevrolet divi- 
sion was shopping this spring for maga 
zines in which to kick off the cam 
paign for its 1995 Corvette, it found some in 
a sleepy comer of academe. 

By May. glossy two-page Corvette ads 
were appearing in the alumni magazines 
of Brown. Cornell. 
Dartmouth. Har- 
vard. Princeton. 
Stanford. Yale and 
the University of 
Pennsylvania. 

This year. 

Chevrolet was one 
of 22 national adver- 
tisers to make use of 
the Ivy League Magazine Network, which 
sells space in the nonprofit alumni maga 
zines that keep graduates of seven Ivy 
League schools and non-Ivy Stanford up 
to-date on campus news and classmates' 
comings-and-goings. (Columbia, the 
eighth meml)er of the Ivy League, doesn't 
have a magazine.) 

The Corvette ad shows the sleek yellow 
sports car parked on an elegant street, 
while a rugged-looking young man strolls 
by with a longing, backward glance. "The 
average dream lasts 6.6 minutes, " reads 
the tagline. "This isn't your average 
dream." 

"People, especially guys when they re 
young, see a Corvette and say, That's 
where I want to be.' And that's not too far 
from the concept of the Ivy League," says 
Lew Eads. Corvette's advertising man- 
ager. 

The idea of the Ivy network is strength 
in numbers, combined with impeccable 
demographics. Or. as the network pitches 
it: "880.000 highly educated, successful 
and well-rewarded readers - in the privacy 
of their own home." The magazines" com- 
bined circulation is comparable to that of 
The New Yorker - and their readers are 
even more affluent - in other words, at- 
tractive to marketers of $45,000 Corvettes 
and other luxury goods. 



The network, headquartered in Cam- 
bridge. Mass.. has existed for a quarter of 
a century. But only this year did it begin a 
full-blown marketing campaign to draw 
advertisers' attention to its elite reader- 
ship. "The demographics haven't 
changed; it was just a well-kept secret for 
awhile." says Laura Freid. the network's 
executive director and the publisher of 
Harvard Magazine. 

New sales teams in Detroit. New York 
and Cambridge helped boost the network's 
advertising sales revenue 2V7i this year to 
$1.41 million, reflecting a 27'I increase in 
advertising pages. 

While each school magazine sells ad 
space individually, the network offers a 
lO^t discount for ad placements in at least 
three Ivy League publications. It costs 
$12,095 for a four-color, full-page ad in 
Harvard Magazine alone; by placing the 
same ad through the network, the cost of 
space in Harvard Magazine drops to 
$10,885. says Tom Schreckinger, a network 
sales manager in New York. Most compa- 
nies advertise in the eight alumni maga 
zines plus the Harvard Business Bulletin, 
he adds, at a bulk rate of $40,175. 

According to Mendelsohn Media Re- 
search, an independent New York-based 
research company, the median household 
income of Ivy network readers is $115,200. 
That's higher than Business Week 
($107,500). Forbes I$1M.600), Town and 
Country ($99,700) and The New Yorker 
($99,600), according to a 1994 Mendelsohn 
survey of upscale households. 

With prices rising, "the affluent base 
IS becoming more and more important to 
advertisers." says Mitch Lurin. Mendel- 
sohn's president. Only four publications 
boast median household incomes higher 
than the Ivy League magazines: The Econ- 
omist ($121,000). Wine Spectator 
($119,600). Worth ($117,800) and New York 
($115,000). according to Mr. Lurin. 

Toyota's Lexus began advertising 
through the network six years ago. "It is a 
good, upscale, educated market that has 



always understood the essence of smart 
value. " says Ken Thomas, a Lexus mar- 
keting and sales manager. Lexus targets a 
"similar, educated crowd" by advertis- 
ing in Smithsonian. The New Yorker and 
The Atlantic Monthly, he adds. 

Along with demographics, the Ivy net- 
work markets the professed loyalty of its 
readers to their alma maters, and the time 
they spend poring through the magazines" 
class notes and obituaries. 

"The more that readers are involved in 
a magazine, the more they care about the 
advertising." says Anita McGrath. associ- 
ate media director for DDB Needham. the 
agency for Bermuda Tourism, which has 
advertised in the alumni magazines for 
two years. This year Turkish Tourism and 
Cunard Cruise Lines also came aboard, in 
search of consumers with a disposition - 
and the income -tor luxury vacations. 

The network keeps less than 20% of the 
total ad revenue, and distributes the rest 
to the individual magazines. For some 
publications, this year's surge in advertis- 
ing could mean new resources for expand- 
ing readership. 

The Pennsylvania Gazette is mailed 
free to all University of Pennsylvania 
alumni for 25 years, a circulation of 84.000. 
Aided by network sales, the magazine saw 
a 25% jump in both national and local 
advertising space this year. The extra 
revenue allows the company to send maga- 
zines to more of its alumni, says Burton 
Ploener. the magazine's advertising coor- 
dinator. 

"The money that has trickled down 
from the network has helped us."" says Mr. 
Ploener. "We would eventually like to 
distnbute to all the 210.000 living alums."

The Ultimate Consumer Annual 



Books 

By James Reinbold 

Live long! Save 
time! Save money! 

The Pyncticnl Guide to Pmcticalh/ Every- 
thing: liiforiimtioii You Can Reailif Use 
edited by Peter Bernstein '73 and 
Christopher Ma (Random House, New 
York, N.Y., 1995), $13.95. 

It is said that Aristotle was the last 
person to have the sum of all knowl- 
edge filed neatly in his brain. In today's 
computer age, the contents of an entire 
encyclopedia can be retrieved from a 
single CD-ROM. 

But according to U.S. Neuv & Worhi 
Repoit editors Peter Bernstein and 
Christopher Ma, today's consumers are 
overloaded with information. Worse, 
when a story is seized by the media, the 
information is often contradictory: but- 
ter today, margarine tomorrow; run, 
don't walk, for exercise; no, walking is 
plenty good for your heart. What's 
needed, believe Bernstein and Ma, is a 
"practical, expert, no-nonsense guide to 
the most important developments in 
everything from health and nutrition to 
money management and career plan- 
ning, travel, entertainment, and con- 
sumer technology." 

Voila! Behold The Pineticnl Guide to 
Practically Everything. Roughly the size 
and weight of a brick, the guide is 1,006 
pages of information, tips, and expert 
advice on - well, practically everything. 
This is the soup-to-nuts book for har- 
ried, confused consumers. 

Taking their cue from Benjamin 
Franklin's Poor Richard's Almaitac and 
the still-popular The Old Farmer's 
Almanac (published continuously since 
1792), Bernstein and Ma update a time- 
honored reference genre. "The roads we 
travel now are even less well-marked 
and full of far more forks than in Ben 
Franklin's heyday," they write in their 
almanac's introduction. "We hope this 
book will be a compass that will help 
you find your way." 

With those words of comfort, the 
reader is ready to navigate the almanac. 
First up: Chapter One, "Money," which 









The 

Practical 

Guide to 

Practically 

Everything 






Peter Bernstein and Christopher IMa 



includes information about investing, 
mutual funds, real estate, collecting, 
insurance, and taxes. As in the almanacs 
that have gone before, there are tips and 
prognostications. To wit: expect pros- 
perity and a bull market in 1996; pre- 
pare for the flat-tax debate. 

Each of the book's fourteen sections 
is lavishly illustrated with charts, 
graphs, tables, and diagrams. Get fit, eat 
healthy, look great, select the best medi- 
cal care, and learn first aid in "Health." 
You're never too old for a little more sex 
education in "Sexuality." There's help- 
ful advice for the kids' educations, and 
you can even advise them on career 
choices with pointers gleaned from 
"Education" and "Careers." The section 
titled "Facts for Life" is a cornucopia of 
data on weather, stars and tides, times 
and eiates, figures and formulas, and 
traditions - very much in the style of 
The Old Farmer's Almanac. 

Any attempt to describe this ency- 
clopedia fails to do justice to its scope. 
Bernstein and Ma had expert help - from 
450 experts, to be exact, including investor 
Warren Buffett, whose advice includes, 
"Beware of past performance proofs in 
finance. If history books were the key to 
riches, the Forbes 400 would consist 
of librarians." Wine connoisseur Robert 
Parker assembles a vintage guide to 
fine wines bottled from 1970 to 1993, 
and Florence Griffith-Joyner, the Olympic 
track medalist, exhorts, "Just walking 
requires strong abdominal muscles, so 
make them strong." 

"He that lives well is learned enough," 
Ben Franklin said in Poor Richard's Ahna- 
iiac. Farmers in colonial times had their 
almanacs to help them live well. Now 
twentieth-centurv consumers have theirs. 



Clean dirt, mule rides, 
and cash- surrender

The pages of The Practical Guide are 
jam-packed with Expert Tips, 
Expert Sources, and Expert Quotes. 
A sampling: 

One- and two-day mule rides 
are a (somewhat bumpy) alterna- 
tive to hiking the Grand Canyon. 
Avoid rides in the summer, when

about buying life insurance, 
remember to ask how much you'd 
get if you cashed in your policy 
after one year - the so-called cash 
surrender value." - Glenn Daily, 
insurance expert 

"When a person makes a prac- 
tice of eating whole grains instead 
of refined foods, and vegetables 
and fruits in season, they can feel 
confident that the next time a new 
nutrient is discovered, they will

About the author 

E\ery year at the offices of U.S. News 
thev come around with a cart loaded 
with copies of the new World Almanac," 
Peter Bernstein says in a telephone inter- 
view. "I would just toss the old one out 
without ever having even cracked the 
spine, and put the new one on the shelf." 

Executive editor at U.S. News & World 
Report and a self-proclaimed "infoholic," 
Bernstein resolved to assemble an almanac 

that would be useful, helpful, and practical, in the tradition of almanacs past. "In 
Colonial America, the almanac was the one other important book on the shelf, right 
next to the Bible," he says. "In Colonial times there was too little information; today 
there is too much information and too little time." 

One of best-read sections of U.S. Neius is "News You Can Use," Bernstein says, 
and the most popular issues of the magazine are those featuring annual guides. It's 
not surprising that Bernstein should have hit upon the concept for The Practical 
Guide to Practically Everything. 

To assemble and complete The Practical Guide, Bernstein and Christopher Ma, 
deputy editor at U.S. News, consulted more than 450 experts and utilized the skills 
of a small army of editors and writers. 

Work is well along for the 1996 edition of the almanac, Bernstein says. The new 
edition will have new experts and new categories, and will include more material r^ 
la ted to children, more information about retirement planning, and a citizen's guide. 

Bernstein and his wife. Amy D. Bernstein, are coeditors of Quotations From 
Speaker Nexvt: The Little Red, White, and Blue Book of the Republican Revolution (1995). 
The president-elect of the Brown Alumni Association, Bernstein lives with his wife 
and three children in Washington, D.C.

HE VIEW FROM 
CENTURY'S END 



Totalitarianism, 
publisbed this 

year, placed 
Abbott Gleason 
in the first rank 

of Cold War 
historians. With 
the conflict over, 

what's next? 



In May 1964 a Han-ard 
graduate student named 
Abbott Gleason arrived in Tou- 
galoo, Mississippi, and joined 
the growing numbers gather- 
ing for Freedom Summer, the 
fiery season that would inspire 
and anger civil rights advo- 
cates for decades to come. To 
a young, aspiring historian the 
prospect of participating in an 
epochal moral crusade was 
irresistible. When President 
Johnson signed the Civil Rights 
Act that summer, Gleason 
sensed he was exactly where 
he should be. All around him, 
in town halls and backstreet ^^^^^^^^^^ 

lunch counters, the drama of 

equality was unfolding, moving inexorably forward 
under the oppressive Southern sun. History could 
hardly be more grand. The century's narrative, 
after stumbling over the horrors of Stalin's Gulag 
and Hitler's camps, was unfolding progressively, 
in the general direction of greater freedom and 
equality. First in foreign places like Germany, 
Italy, and Japan, and now in the United States, the 
enemies of egalitarian society were falling. Or so it 
seemed for a time iii 1964. 

But even a history in which the righteous pre- 
vail can be humiliating and terrifying, as Gleason 
was about to learn firsthand. Once the Civil Rights 
Act became law, activists in the South began testing 
local compliance. Dressed in suits, mixed-race 
groups - in Gleason's case, two wJiites and three 
blacks - entered lunch counters and restaurants, 
sat down, and waited to be served. Sometimes a 
waitress would say, "Look, if you just go to the 
window out back, we'll serve you." Other times 
she'd look to the other patrons, announce, "There 
are agitators here," and men would approach, ask- 
ing, "What are you doing here, nigger lovers?" 
Gleason remembers being spat on and punched. 



The unexpected fall 
of the Soviet Union has 

taught scholars that 

history is not ahvays a 

reliable guide to the 

future. It's a lesson, says 

historian Abbott 

Gleason, that was long 

overdue. 



Few things in his life, how- 
ever, prepared him for the 
terror of riding in a car along 
a country road and being 
pulled over and interrogated 
bv hostile Mississippi state 
troopers just two weeks after 
three young civil rights 
workers were murdered in 
the state. For a few moments, 
Gleason was not sure he 
would ever see Cambridge 
again. 

In fact, he returned in 
October. By 1969 he'd earned 
his doctorate and joined the 
Brown faculty as a Russian 
^^^^^^^^^^ specialist, becoming in 1993 

the Barnabv Conrad and 
Mary Critchfield Keeney Professor of History. But 
Gleason's thirty-one-year-old Mississippi memories 
have stayed with him. Within those experiences 
lay the seed of his later view of history, including 
his rejection of the idea that it evolves in recogniz- 
able stages toward a more progressive and civil 
world. During Freedom Summer Gleason began to 
understand the violent disarray that a civil society 
can mask. In TotaUtananism: The Inner History 
of the Cohi War, published by Oxford University 
Press last spring, he writes: "By the time the three 
civil rights workers had been murdered in Missis- 
sippi in the summer of 1964, my sense of exactly 
how the United States was different from the 
Soviet Union was becoming blurred. In the world 
of Sheriff Bull Connor and Governor George Wal- 
lace ... it simply became difficult as a practical 
matter for an idealistic young person to belie\e that 
Americans not only had a great ci\'ilization but in 
fact zuere civilization. . . ." 

Such long-held certainties received yet another 
blow on December 23, 1991, when Mikhail Gor- 
bachev quit as president of the Soviet Union, end- 
ing once and for all the pretense that there any

BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY / 25 



longer was a Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. 
Gleason, who was finishing his history of the Cold 
War at the time, was as surprised as anyone by 
the fall of the nation that only a few months before 
had been demonized as the world's powerful and 
menacing "Evil Empire." 

Events like these, Gleason maintains, have 
exposed the shaky assumptions that support many 
popular views of twentieth-century history. At a 
time when academics in a range of disciplines are 
spinning out a new generation of grand theories, 
many historians and social scientists - Gleason 
among them - are growing theoretically more cau- 
tious. "The last fifteen years have driven the final 
nails into the coffin of the universalizing view of 
how societies work," he says. "There is no longer 
as much stress on models of development. Look 
at the fall of the Shah in Iran. If you'd asked what 
form of government would be likely to replace 
the Shah, you would have been told a more demo- 
cratic, modernizing form of government, or per- 
haps a form of Marxism, but not the theocracy 
they have now." 

In Gleason's view, events of the last few decades 
have even called into question the traditional justi- 
fication for studying 
history. "There's always 
been a belief in the pub- 
lic's mind that historians 
study history to predict 
the future," he says. "You 
study where you've 
been to chart how to get 
where you want to go. 
But studying Vietnam 

tells you nothing about 

Bosnia. History now pro- 
duces understanding in a more limited sense, an 
understanding full of ironies and paradoxes. If you 
spend a lot of time studying history, and you're 
humble about it, you'll have a vague sense of what 
people are likely to do in a certain situation." No 
longer, Gleason believes, can we expect more. 

Did you know that Mao didn't brush his

were green and he had horrible halitosis." 

Tom Gleason - he seldom goes by Abbott - sits 
in his office chair, relishing the image of a Mao with 
bad breath. Such puckish details fascinate him; 
they scale the pompous down to human size. His 
crowded, bookish warren conceals wry ironies 
and clues to a character with diverse and deeply 
felt passions. His constant companion there is 
Dinah, a thirteen-year-old mongrel acquired from 
the local pound and named after the cat in Alice 
in Woiuleiimid. On a bookshelf is a computer-gen- 
erated composite of Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, and 
Mao - whose combined visage, Gleason observes, 
looks strikingly like that of Saddam Hussein.

cialist. This expert on Russian culture and president 
of the American Association for the Advancement 
of Slavic Studies describes himself as "an Orwell 
nut," and like the British writer, he writes plainly 
and distrusts the overly narrow and the pedantic. 
"When the four-volume Orwell came out [in 
1968]," he says, "I got them and read through them 
almost immediately. 1 couldn't help thinking that 
my colleagues will read fi\'e history books while 
I do this." Another shaping influence was the great 
German historian Hannah Arendt, author of the 
famous 1951 study Tlw Origins of Totalitarianism, 
whom he believes is "the most fascinating thinker" 
in his own book on the subject. Like Orwell she, 
too, preferred the company of writers and critics 
to that of academics. 

Gleason's decision to become an historian 
came late. Competing with history were other 
loves, especially painting and jazz. "I chose his- 
tory," he explains, "not because that's what I'd 
rather do than painting, but because I felt I was 
better at it." In his office today is a portrait of 
the nineteenth-century Russian landscape painter 
Ivan Shishkin; nearby is one of the historian's 
own small abstract paintings. ("My style is some- 
where between Cubism and Jackson Pollock," 
he says.) Also on one wall is an autographed photo 
of jazz pianist McCoy Tyner and old snapshots 
of Gleason's two children: Nick, now twenty-seven, 
and Meg, twenty-four; in several photographs 
Meg wears an oversized tee-shirt with a simple 
Russian inscription: Time Flies.

Black Panthers were among 

tJic U.S. radicals of the 

i^6os and 'yos who visited 

Gleason's class on tJie 

young Russian revolutionists 

of a century before. 



In Gleason's 
books the Soviet 

system is 
inseparable from 
Russian culture. 



In retrospect Gleason's study of history seems 
inescapable. His father was a medieval historian 
at Harvard, "which led me to say the last thing I 
would ever, ever do was become one myself." (His 
father was also a friend of fellow medievalist 
Barnaby Keeney, Brown's twelfth president.) The 
younger Gleason's mother, a portrait painter, was 
the daughter of another Har\ard historian, and 
Sarah Gleason, Tom's wife, is the author of Kindly 

Lights, a 1991 history of 

southern New England 
lighthouses - a book, 
Gleason admits, "which 
has made the family 
much more monev than 
anything I've ever 
written." 

When Gleason writes 
about his father in the 
introduction to Totaii- 
tarinuism, it's clear that 
his relationship with 
this daunting intellectual presence was at times 
stormy. Yet Gleason's father also pro\'ided his son 
with a crucial lesson about history's immediacy. 
After the attack on Pearl Harbor, S. Everett Glea- 
son moved his family to Washington, where he 
became an official for the Office of Strategic Ser- 
vices (OSS), the precursor to the CIA. During 
World War II, Tom Gleason explains, intelligence 
agencies were staffed with large numbers of aca- 
demics who "were used to taking documents con- 
taining very little information and coming to a rea- 
sonable conclusion about them." The elder 
Gleason eventually was appointed liaison officer 
between the OSS and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. 
Although the combination of academic rigor 
and government intrigue must have 
been thrilling for the young Gleason to 
observe, he ex'entually rebelled against 
his father's position as "a fer\'ent 
member of the Cold War elite." After 
the war, the elder Gleason joined the 
National Security Council under Presi- 
dents Truman and, later, Eisenhower. 
The resulting exposure to international 
politics, Gleason writes in Total- 
itaiianifi}!, 
"both reflected 
and strength- 
ened his belief 
in a bipolar 
world and in the 
mission of the 
United States to 
preserve that 
world from Soviet 
domination." It 
was these beliefs 
that his son came 
to doubt amid the 
moral ambiguities

of the Deep South in 1964 and that he would 
reexamine during the decade he worked on 
Totnlitariniiisni. 

The excitement of Washington and the Mani- 
chaean world-view of his father greatly influenced 
Gleason's decision to study Russia. Still, he was 
miserable at first. "1 had no confidence in my 
choice," he recalls, "and no confidence in myself. 
1 felt 1 was somebody whose interest in history was 
part and parcel of his interest in literature and art 
and architecture and music. Yet here I was learning 
past paradigms of history instead of thinking 
for myself - something that was important to do, 
I feel now. But 1 didn't enjoy it." 

The turning point came when he began to teach. 
In the classroom, with students only a few years 
his junior, he could at last think for himself. And 
his students responded, nicknaming liim Tom Tutor. 
"As I've become older," Gleason says, "I've real- 
ized that students for obvious reasons have a bias 
for an\- bright-eyed, energetic young teacher." As 
his expertise grew, Gleason saw parallels between 
Russia and the United States as young offshoots of 
European culture. By this time, Gleason, a socialist 
as an undergraduate, had become a social demo- 
crat con\inced that modernity, with its emphasis 
on liberal American individualism, was misguided 
and sterile. "Later," he says, "I realized that I was 
more of a romantic collectivist than a socialist. My 
tendency was to understand personal relations in 
terms of families and small communities. I thought 
of that as a form of leftism, but it could just as eas- 
ily be a criticism from the right." 

Gleason became intrigued by similarities be- 
tween the Russian radicals of the 1860s and Ameri- 
can radicals of the 1960s. Russian radicalism even- 
tually led to the revolution of 1917; might the United 
States be headeci in the same direction? Out of 
such questions came his second book. Young Russin. 
(His first, European und Muscovite, was an expan- 
sion of his dissertation. "Your first book is written 
to please your professor," he explains. "You write 
your second book to please yourself.") 

Young Russia is as much a product of teaching 
as of scholarship. Gleason hit his stride as a teacher 
during his graduate years at Harvard, but Brown 
provided him with the opportunity to explore the 
cross-fertilization between the classroom and the 
study. "The people who taught me Russian history," 
he says, "were almost all emigres. Tliey were very 
European and were never at home in American 
culture. I had the idea that I could bring this world 
ali\e to American students better than my teachers 
had. I was enamored of the idea that I could do 
something that would be interesting to undergrad- 
uates and also to scholars." In the late 1960s and 
early 1970s, Gleason's Russian history course drew 
local radicals who imagined a kinsliip with those 
who laid the groundwork for the Russian Revolu- 
tion. "People would come from as far away as 
Boston to sit in on my class," Gleason recalls. "I 
even had a few Black Panthers come by."

Although Gleason was intrigued by the 
parallels between the Russian radicals of 
the 1860s and those in the United States during 
the 1960s, he was a rigorous enough scholar to 
shun facile comparisons. His experiences in the 
South during Freedom Summer may have triggered 
doubts about the conventional wisdom he had 
inherited, but his growing familiarity with Russia 
and, more generally, with the Soviet Union tem- 
pered his politics during the ferocious Viehiam 
years. When he met with radical friends and col- 
leagues, he remembers, "I was usually the most 
right-wing antiwar person in the room." 

Gleason was content studying the Russia of 
the nineteenth century, but current events beck- 
oned. A Cold War was being waged with the very 
country whose history he knew so well, and he 
began exploring ways to apply his knowledge to 
it. The opportunity came in 1980, when he became 
the secretary of the Kennan Institute for Advanced 
Russian Studies. In those days the Kemian Insti- 
tute, which is part of the Woodrow Wilson Center 
at the Smithsonian in Washington, was a stop on a 
think-tank circuit featuring such well-known offi- 
cials as Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski 
(who would later write a cover blurb for Totnlitnri- 
anism). The world of the academy mingled freely 
with the world of Washington. "We had to decide 



things like what we would and wouldn't do with 
the CIA," Gleason says, "In addition to people 
who wanted to send exploding cigars to Fidel 
Castro, the CIA had an enormous arm of academ- 
ic analysis of the Soviet Union, especially in eco- 
nomics. They didn't differ from academic colleagues 
in any significant way. The only area where things 
got hairy was whether we could accept funding 
from the CIA for conferences and to support publi- 
cations - we didn't. That's a kind of problem you 
don't have in the history department at Brown." 
They were happy, nostalgic days for Gleason. 
Almost daily he rode an old bicycle to work from 
his family's house. (A tenant had earlier reported 
bourbon and cigarettes mysteriously disappearing; 
a neighbor who'd known Gleason's late father 
suggested that the old man, who was fond of both, 
was haunting the place.) The claptrap bicycle was 
an embarassment to Dillon Ripley, then head of 
the Smithsonian, who ordered a special rack built 
for it out of sight. For two-and-a-half years Glea- 
son read, studied, and attended lectures. His 
knowledge of twentieth-century Russia expanded 
quickly. In fact, the Kennan Institute, he now 
says, "forced me out of the nineteenth century and 
into the twentieth." It also gave him the idea for 
his next book, which would take him ten years 
to complete. 



28 / DECEMBER 1995 



The impetus was a conference, scheduled for 
1983, on George Orwell's 1984. Knowing of Glea- 
son's passion for the author, the conference orga- 
nizer asked him to present a paper on any aspect 
of Orwell's work. As Gleason reread Orwell's let- 
ters and essays dealing with the Spanish Civil 
War, he was struck by the author's comments on 
the collaboration between Stalin and Hitler in Spain. 
"There was the notion," Gleason says, "that there 
were structural similarities between communism 
and fascism, between the far left and the far right." 
Could it be, Gleason wondered, that scholars had 
focused too much on the differences between com- 
munism and fascism? Perhaps, he thought, more 
could be learned from what thev shared: a complete 
usurpation of power from the individual by the 
state - the totalitarianism Orwell so prescientlv sav\-. 

The question, Gleason estimates, dominated 
his working life from 1983 to 1993. As he did for 
Young Kiis^m, he made the concepts he was exam- 
ining a centerpiece of his courses at Brown, relying 
on his students to help refine and elaborate on 
his idea. The result. Totalitarianism, was published 
earlier this year to admiring reviews. In it Gleason 
traces the long history of the term, which originated 
seventy years ago in Mussolini's Italy to describe 
a system that its advocates hoped would replace 
the decadent bourgeois society of the nineteenth 
century with something brand new. Faith in gov- 
ernment's ability to create a fairer, more prosperous 
society was growing, and over the next few decades 
it would reach an all-time high. 

While Gleason's book looks primarily at totali- 
tarianism in Italy, Germany, and the So\'iet Union, 
it is particularly good at tracing the political uses 
of the term in the West. In Gleason's view. World 
War II and the Cold War are linked bv a free-world 
goal of beating back the threat of totalitarian gov- 
ernments. "The whole 
argument," he says, "is. 
Do fascism and com- 
munism have so much 
in common that one is 
justified in understand- 
ing them as similar 
manifestations of an 
identical set of things? 
It's the central question 

of the book." 

Although Totalitari- 
anism is a history, it sheds a fascinating light on the 
fall of the Soviet Union. The country failed, Glea- 
son suggests, because longstanding Russian politi- 
cal, cultural, and economic traits exacerbated com- 
munism's totalitarian tenciencies. In the end, 
bedrock characteristics of Russian culture helped 
turn communism into something oppressi\'e and 
hugely inefficient and demoralized. 

"You see in the Soviet Union all these Russian 
things that really have nothing to do with commu- 
nism," he says. "You see it in the cult of World 
War n there, in the monuments and the celebrations. 
And vou see it in the mummification of Lenin and

placing him on display for generations of Russians 
to see. That's \ery different from what Marxism 
calls for. Trotsky, for example, was very critical 
of it." But the practice, he adds, should not be sur- 
prising: "It goes back to the cult of the czar. 

"What brought me into this field was not the 
Cold War," Gleason clarifies, "but Russian culture, 
which has always been my area of interest. Totali- 
tarianism is Russian culture embedded in a twenti- 
eth-century context." 

The bright promise of 1964's Freedom Sum- 
mer has been replaced b\- a far more confus- 
ing post-totalitarian world. Gleason, an outspoken 
political liberal and a historian whose subject 
has suddenly vanished from the world stage, is 
unabashedly puzzled by the current historical 
moment. "I'm appalled," he says, "bv the attempt 
in this country to basically repeal everything that's 
happened since the McKinley Administration. Even 
here there's some connection to the end of the 
Soviet Union and the end of totalitarianism." 

The fall of the Soviet Union, he belie\'es, is 
only the most extreme example of hostility to the 
state that is sweeping the world. Many leaders 
belie\'e a new Utopia will now be created bv an 
unfettered marketplace. But Gleason fears that one 
result has been a growing "acceptance of inequal- 
ity." He explains: "As a liberal bom around 1940, 
I grew up feeling guilty about my privileged posi- 
tion. 1 still do. I always assumed that U.S. society 
needed to be more equal. 1 know there are limits. 
Soviet society taught us that if you use coercion 
to try to make a society equal, you can destroy it. 
But when the neoconser\ati\es came along in 
the late 1970s and '80s, that was the first thing they 
said: 'Liberals are fanatics about equality.' They 
argued that it's a vain effort because (a) it's not 
going to work and (b) it's unjust." His voice rises 
to a higher register, the passion from 1964 return- 
ing. "I used to feel I wasn't egalitarian enough, 
that 1 was too limited. Now I feel like I'm some 
lunatic martyr willing to be taxed more for the 
welfare state. That used to be a ho-hummer; now 
it's an extreme position." 

Such ironies and paradoxes, amplified by Glea- 
son's liberal passion, will continue to fascinate 
him. There is the paradox that the Cold War, the 
focus of his father's life and the catalyst for his 
own \outhful rebellion, has become a central con- 
cern of his own. And there is the irony of the dis- 
appearance of his subject just as Gleason's grand 
book about it was almost fiiiished. But, like a Mao 
with bad breath, such oddities are as amusing to 
Gleason as they are humbling. "Oh, sure, I'll miss 
the Cold VVar," he says. "Not because my subject 
is gone, but because grants, conferences, and all 
these things are drying up. But when the Cold VVar 
is over, the history of the Cold War still exists." 
He pauses, then adds, "If you're a historian, noth- 
ing ever dies." E]

Publishing a student magazine means long hours, empty pockets, and 
blank pages at the eleventh hour. So why do the presses keep rolling? 



By Chad Gaits 



30 / DECEMBER 1995 




Eric Witherspoon '96 
and Nate Tassler '96, 
of Issues, which 
runs articles like 
"Generation X and 
the Late-Capitalist, 
Postmodern, Non- 
Cumulative World." 



To most students, the foyers of the Refectory 
and Faunce House are places to pass through 
on the wav to a meal. The traffic is usually brisk; 
nothing can stand safely between a student and his 
food for \'ery long. Yet from time to time, amid the 
voices and stampeding feet you'll see a student 
pause long enough to pluck a magazine from the 
piles off to one side. Each stack represents weeks 
of late-night work and frustration. Given the hours 
that go into production, the magazines' shelf life is 
poignantly short. "The recycling bins are usually 
pretty full on Mondays," a Rattv manager says. 
"They drop those weird magazines here on Friday 
afternoons." 

Transient passageways are a fitting en\'ironment 
for student magazines. Since the Bninonian pub- 
lished its first issue in 1829 (see page 35), more than 
fifty ha\'e appeared on and disappeared from cam- 
pus. Some of the most ephemeral represent seniors' 
last-minute attempts to bolster their resumes, while 
others target specific issues that tend to run out 
of steam. Often the magazines are produced by 
friends with common interests; when the students 
graduate, so do their magazines. Readers may 
notice dramatic changes in design and focus from 
one volume to the next of the same magazine - 
again, a byproduct of rapid student turnover. 

What doesn't change among each year's crop 
of amateur editors is a diehard enthusiasm for 
publishing. The interests that spawn student mag- 
azines ^'ary from the haute culture of the long-run- 
ning Issues to the nitty-gritty science news of new- 
comer Cntnh/st. In each of the four magazines 
profiled here, the burdens of writing, illustration, 
photography, and pre-press production fall almost 
exclusix'ely on the handful of students inxolved. 
None has faculty sponsors, and each group has to 
present a detailed budget to the Undergraduate 
Finance Board for funding. These students learn 
early and firsthand that publishing a magazine 
isn't just about writing articles and taking pictures. 
E\ ery editor interviewed for this article expressed 
dismay at not having more paid adx-ertisements, 
but none complained about being unpaid. 

The urge to publish has defined the undergrad- 
uate life of Eric Witherspoon '96 ever since fresh- 
man orientation week, when he sneaked out of an 
(7 cappella concert to help a high-school friend lay 
out Issues, an arts magazine. In a small room on the 
second floor of Faunce House, they hunched in 
front of a computer screen until 1 a.m. Little did 
Witherspoon know that by the beginning of his 
junior year he'd be /sskcs' editor-in-chief, as well as 
the director of a more sophisticated student maga- 
zine-production facility. 

At the time of Witherspoon's escape from n cap- 
pella, CONMAG (Computer Network Management 
Group) was a single room housing four antiquated 
computers and a low-resolution printer. Through 
his and others' intense lobbying efforts, the space 
has doubled. Today the facility has six powerful 




computers, a scan- 
ner, state-of-the-art 
layout and graphic- 
design software, a 
high-resolution 
printer, and a file 
ser\'er. "CONMAG 
isn't as sophisti- 
cated as it could 
be," Witherspoon 
says, "but every- 
thing vou need 
to make a maga- 
zine is right here. 
1 spend way too much 
time in here," he adds - on average, 
se\'enty to eighty hours working on each issue 
of Issues. 

Without CONMAG, student editors would 
have to use scanners in the Sciences Librar\' or the 
Multimedia Lab, and public-cluster computers in 
the Watson Center for Information Technology 
(CIT). Typically crowded, the public clusters are 
designed more for reading e-mail and typing 
papers than for producing magazines. 

"CONMAG is a production headquarters," 
Witherspoon says. "Most [student] magazines are 
much more deadline-driven than Issues. They can't 
exactly monopolize a room in the CIT the night 
before they go to press." 

Designing most of /ss»fs on a good computer 
at home gives Eric Witherspoon more free- 
dom than many of his fellow student editors, but 
it's also time-consuming. This semester he has 
shared some of the /ssid'.s work with its new editor- 
in-chief, Nate Tassler '96. 

First published in January of 1971, Issues is one 
of the longest-running student magazines on cam- 
pus. Its longevity may be due partly to an early- 
retirement policy for editors. Having already 
ser\ed as editor-in-chief, Witherspoon has been 
"demoted" to art director. Nevertheless, he still 
seems very much in control. 

"Issues has gone through a lot of stages," With- 
erspoon says over a strawberry iced latte at Ocean 
Coffee Roasters on Waterman Street. "For a while 
people referred to it as 'that Spy rip-off,' then they 
called it 'that gay magazine,' then it was 'that arty 
magazine.' " The most striking changes since the 
seventies are in the magazine's name (reflecting its 
frequency of publication) and the sophisfication of 
its design. Originally called Issues Weekly, it then 
became Issues Monthly, then Issues Quarterly, and 
now, simply. Issues. The look has changed, too: 
from a scrappy tabloid weekly on newsprint to a 
contemporary arts journal printed on heavy paper. 

Issues' audience has evolved along with its 
look. When it was a weekly tabloid, arficles were

served to distract from what the 
body is (rumbling, twitching) 
and focus on what it is not (a 
well-drafted, one-dimensional 
surface)." 

"There's a sense that Issues is 
inaccessible," Witherspoon says. 
"When we read a submission," 
he nods in Tassler's direction; 
Tassler nods back, "we say to 
ourselves: 'Is this something that 
more than five people will 
understand?' 

"Issues has a narrower focus 
than it used to," he continues. "A 
lot of new magazines have 
stepped into roles we used to 
fill." He pauses to sip his latte. 
"We're writing for the people

newsy, campus-related, and relatively short. In its 
latter-day form, features on such topics as the 
punk rock band Fugazi or "Generation X and the 
Late-Capitalist, Postmodern, Non-Cumulative

ent ideas about the reader-

deadpans, "and our mission is to 
make them laugh." In billowy 
floral pants and a Mickey Mouse 
t-shirt, van Gieson has no trouble 
being funny. 

Editor-in-Chief van Gieson 
and his E.xit 20 colleagues have 
parodied and poked fun at 
ex'erything from Brown's course 
catalogue to need-blind admis- 
sions. Published for the first time 
in February 1993, Exit 20 claims 
to be a direct descendant of the 
Brown lu^, a student humor mag- 
azine published from 1920 to 
1933 - though it is unclear 
whether any staff member has 
ever actually seen a copy of the 
lug. "I've been meaning to - for 
years," van Gieson insists. 

On the cover of Exit 20's pre- 
miere issue Mona Lisa is thinking to herself, "What 
a bunch of morons." Inside, an editor's note attacks 
the University for spending money on "meaning- 
less endeavors that will affect only a tiny percent- 
age of the student body" - namely. Exit 20. Though 
such self-consciousness is rampant in the maga- 
zine, the editors do occasionally talk about other 
things. In the Spring 1993 issue, they announced 
"The Applied Departments," in which a student can 
"take a seemingly conceptual and theoretical field 
and apply it to real-life situations." Courses include 



32 / DECEMBER l^^S 




Snappy Pamphlets and Fliers" in Applied English, 
The SeU-Out Myth" in Applied Visual Arts, and 
Spanking" in Applied Philosophy. 

An artist who has been drawing car- 
toons since first grade, \'an Gieson grew up 
in New York and came to Brown "because 
of a great interview with an eighty-three- 
year-old Pembroker." He didn't make up 
his mind, though, until he visited the cam- 
pus. "It was right after the takeover of Uni- 
versity Hall [by students demanding need- 
blind admissions]. It was a great kind of 
energy to be around." 

It is difficult to tell if van Gieson's 
aim is to fan the flames of activist stu- 
dents' confrontational energy, or simply 
make fun of it. "Need-blind admissions 
is an important issue," he says, "but 
when there's a protest every day, it 
gets very easy to parody, no matter 
how important it is." 

Three davs before the fall issue 
went to press, van Gieson had 
worked approximately forty-five 
hours on the magazine In a single 
week, mostly at night after his 
classes. "We've still got six pages to fill," he said. 
"We're thinking of printing blank pages with the 
word 'Notes' at the top - that way it would seem 
deliberate. . . . Sure you don't want to submit 
something?" 



To Lisa Chalmers '97, putting out a magazine is 
serious business. As editor of the Brou'ii Eco- 
iwinic Review, first published in 1991, she inherited 
from former editor Min Soo Kim '93 a clear, no- 
nonsense view of its role. "People laugh at Brown 
graduates in economics," Kim told her. "They say, 
'How can you have gone there?' " The Economic 
Review is committed to establishing a more serious 
reputation for the study of economics at Brown. 

The magazine carries dense and complicated 
investigations of a variety of issues, from health- 
care reform to the devaluation of the Mexican 
peso. The magazine doesn't shy from highly 
charged, extremely political subjects, which it 
addresses in theoretical and difficult language. As 
a result, the Economic Review may be a student 
magazine that many students don't understand. 
Asked if she'd consider making articles more read- 
able, Chalmers retorts, "Whv should they be sim- 
plified? That's a bit of an insult to students." 

Although many Economic Review authors are 
faculty, alumni, or graduating seniors in economics, 
the magazine has no official ties to the department. 
"Sometimes we go to faculty for advice, or to have 
them read through a submission," Chalmers says, 
"but they don't make decisions for us." 

Their scrappy self-determination and desire to 
burnish the department's image on their own time 
indicate just how serious these students are. It also 
may explain why the Economic Revieu' is Brown's 
only student magazine with a cover price ($2.50).

BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY / 33 





This fall, in their spare time between classes, 
Celia Day '96 and Andrew Norden '98 have 
been editing, assigning, and writing articles; going 
through a laborious funding process; and reinvent- 
ing their magazine - Cdtah/st - from scratch. The 
only computerized version of last year's issue was 
inadvertently erased. 

As a team, Day and Norden are trying to fill 
the gap left by the departure of Franz Johansson 
'95, the science magazine's founder. "The initial 



impulse was completely Franz's," Day says. "He 
handled the whole thing by himself." While Q7f(7- 
h/st may have given Johansson a good line on his 
resume, Day and Norden are the only reasons it 
will publish a second time. 

"Catalyst will come out this semester," Norden 
promises, "even if we have to pay for it ourselves." 
By securing independent funding from several of 
Brown's science departments last year. Catalyst 
was able to bypass the normal route for obtaining

While specialized technical journals stock

Norden '98 and Celia Day '96 aim for a mix 
that everyone can understand. 



student funding: official constitution by the 
Undergraduate Council of Students; then bud- 
get submission, hearings, and approval through 
the Undergraduate Finance Board. The process 
is purposely long to discourage the funding of 
fly-bv-night start-ups. 

Catalyst attracted independent funding partly 
because of its inviting portrayal of the sciences. 
The simply designed magazine includes short 
research summaries from the major science 
departments and longer articles varying from 
from "DNA Fingerprinting and the O.J. Simp- 
son Case," to "Serving the Ancient Ones" - a 
graduate student's account of her fieldwork 
with leatherback turtles. "Last year the admis- 
sion office asked us for reprints to send to 
incoming science concentrators," says Norden. 
"We must be doing something right." 

The magazine also serves as a vehicle for 
combining good science and good writing. 
"There is exactly one half-credit course on science 
writing, and hundreds on how to write an English 
paper," Dav says. "We'd like to create a place for 
students to learn by doing."

■ ou'd think students working this hard 
I for no pay would ha\'e a professional 
goal in mind - that they'd all want to become 
magazine writers, photographers, or designers 
after leaving Brown. You'd be wrong. 

Eric Witherspoon plans to spend a year in 
China, continuing his research into that coun- 
try's history. Celia Day wants to do fieldwork 
in vertebrate paleontology. Lisa Chalmers hopes 
to enter a buyer's program in the retail clothing 
industry. Andrew Norden will go to medical 
school. Only Jon van Gieson may be in it for the 
long haul. He'd like to syndicate his comic strip, 
"Tales From The Established Norm," which cur- 
rently appears in the Brown Daily Herald. 

Even if their magazine work ends up as 
a vaguely-remembered piece of college 
nostalgia, these students will leave behind 
unblinking portraits of life on the Brown cam- 
pus. Their magazines will be filed next to the 
Brunonian and the Brown Jug on the shelves of 
the Brown Archives, where students of the 
next millenium v\'ill flip through them, smile,

The Brown 



Jug 




The great-great-grandfather of all student 
magazines, the Brunonian, was first pub- 
lished in Julv 1829. Surviving in its orig- 
inal form onlv until 1831, it was revived 
under the same name in 1868 and printed 
its final issue in 1918. In its rex'iew of the 
original Brunonian, the Literary Subaltern 
pulled no punches: "Decidedly one of 
the most ridiculous and stupid productions 
that ever disgraced the press ... it is just 
what might be expected from an institvition 
which is under the management of such a 
man as Francis Wayland." 

The Brown Women's CoUege (renamed 
Pembroke in 1928) premiered its own 
magazine, Sepiad, in 1901, ten years after 
women first were admitted for study at 
Brown. Produced until 1928, the maga- 
zine then split into \rwo publications. 
The Record was a weekly newspaper not 
unlike the Broioi Daily Herald, but staffed 
completely by Pembrokers. The Brown 
Alumnae Newsletter began as a short 
mimeograph and eventually became the 
full-fledged Petubroke Alunnm magazine 
in 1957. In 1972 the Alunnia merged with 
the Brown Alumni Monthly. 

Claiming that its pages were "obscene 
and unfit for public reading," Pro\'idence 
police pulled the January 1924 issue of 
Casements, a student literary magazine, 
from the sheh'es of local bookshops and 
newsstands. The offending material, 
written by Fredson Bowers '25, was 
intended as a parody of D.H. Lawrence. 
A short sample of the shocking prose: 
"He looked at her sensually. She looked 
at him sensually. They looked at each 
other sensually - they were standing in 
front of a rabbit pen.... He accidentally 
brushed against her, and their flesh 
seemed to cling together." 

The only student magazine ever to achieve 
fame outside the campus commimity, 
the Brown Jug was published from 1920 
to 1933, with a short-lived revival in 1967. 
The jug's notable contributors included 
one of tliis century's greatest humorists, 
S.J. Perelman '25, a cartoonist and writer 
who went on to pen screenplays for the 
Marx brothers and become a regular con- 
tributor to the New Yorker. 



PORTRAIT 



It all began with Gladys Knight and 
the Pips. Before Gordon Chambers 
could even talk, he was toddling over 
to the record player in his parents' Bronx 
apartment and pointing at the Gladys 
Knight albums. The other records his 
part-time disc jockey father brought 
home on Friday nights during the early 
1970s - the new reggae, disco, and soul 
music that family friends flocked to the 
house to hear - sounded, to his young 
but discerning ear, just okay. Gladys 
was the one whose songs Chambers, 
once he learned to speak in sentences, 
belted out in the bathtub. 

Now singers - both professionals and 
those of the bathtub variety - are belting 
out his songs. Soul divas Anita Baker 
and Toni Braxton, rappers Naughty By 
Nature and Queen Latifah, and girl 
groups Brownstone and Jade are among 
the pop artists recording Chambers's 
words and music as fast as he can put 
them on paper. In the past two years his 
name has repeatedly climbed Billboimi's 
R&B and pop charts as the author of 
such top-forty singles as "I Apologize" 
and "If You Love Me." 

Yet building a reputation among 
cutthroat music producers and rubbing 
elbows with pop's top echelon aren't 
what drive Chambers. Like the charac- 
ters in his romantic ballads, he's looking 
for love and appreciation; he finds it in 
such places as the third row at Anita 
Baker's Atlantic City concert this year, 
watching her croon "I Apologize," and 
hearing the audience sing along with 
every word. "I turned around," Cham- 
bers says, "and saw thousands of black 
women singing as loudly in back of me 
as she was in front of me." No Billboard 
chart ever made him feel that good. 

Teaneck, New Jersey, almost did. 
That's where Chambers's parents 
moved so their two sons could get a top- 
notch public-school education; it's also 
where he began to flourish as a musi- 
cian. He studied the trumpet and classi- 
cal piano, played in bands, and began 
writing songs - "mostly overly opti- 
mistic love songs," he says, a la Lionel 
Richie and "Endless Love." But a friend's 
death in 1986 pushed him to a deeper 
level of composing. The song Chambers 
wrote in memory of the seventeen-year-

Just listen. 



BY JENNIFER SUTTON 

old girl murdered by her boyfriend made 
him realize that "if you write honestly 
from your own experience, you'll touch 
an awful lot of people," 

Throughout high school, Chambers's 
father urged him to sing his own compo- 
sitions, just as he tried - unsuccessfully - 
to push football and basketball on his 
unathletic son. Not until Chambers was 
ensconced at Brown, playing in one band 
after another, did he finally tire of hear- 
ing other people's voices interpret his 
songs. Opening his own mouth gave him 
a freedom he'd never felt before. "When 
you're an instrumentalist," he explains, 
"the music comes through a conduit. 
But when you're singing, it comes from 
your own anatomy - you can literally 
feel it from your toes to your nostrils." 

So when Chambers returned to New 
York after graduation, it was as a singer. 
He found a day job as an editorial assis- 
tant at Essence magazine, rising to enter- 
tainment editor within three years. But 
nights he spent in jazz clubs, singing to 
positive reviews and gathering a small 
circle of fans. SHU, the fairy-tale trajectory 
Chambers had imagined - talent scout 
sees young genius perform and offers 
record deal - didn't happen. "In New 
York, the music industry doesn't exactly 
revolve around live performers," he 
explains. "Everything is a demo tape. As 
I started figuring out how it all works, I 
realized I had to get my chops together 
in the studio." Chambers also recognized 
that the life of a jazz performer is a life on 
the road. Not wanting to exist out of a 
suitcase, he turned to R&B. 

The songs begin with an image in his 
head. If that image is clear enough, the 
lyrics flow out of him in twenty minutes 
or half an hour; a subway ride from his 
midtown office back to his apartment in 



Brooklyn, maybe. The melody floats 
along simultaneously. For the Anita 
Baker anthem "I Apologize," the image 
in his head was of a single black woman 
on the telephone. "Somebody who could 
be my mother," Chambers says, "some- 
one who just had a bad argument, gets 
the operator on the line, and says, 'Girl, 
let me talk about it.' " The song is one of 
many written by Chambers that female 
vocalists have chosen to record, but he 
rejects the notion that he possesses any 
special insight into women's psyches. 

"Emotions are emotions," he insists. 
"We all want romance, fantasy, to be 
in love - that's just human desire. Male 
or female, nobody wants it any less." 
If Chambers wrote books they'd be 
romance novels, minus the bodice-rip- 
per covers: full of passion and tender 
words, the characters always searching 
for love and hungering for better rela- 
tionships. "When I'm writing a love 
song," Chambers says, "I need to make 
it more than just 'I'm in love and it feels 
great.' It's more like, 'I'm a better person 
because of you.' I try to write from a 
place of gratitude." 

Despite the thrill and gratitude 
Chambers feels hearing words he wrote 
on Anita Baker's lips, he is itching, once 
again, to sing his own songs. College 
acquaintances - people who knew him 
as a singer - often ask when his solo 
album will be released; he advises them 
to hang on, assures them they'll see 
his face in record stores soon. Because 
he's only twenty-six, his impatience 
and confidence seem excessive. Then 
he reminds you that his first song - an 
ode to Jonathan Livingston Seagull - 
was commissioned by the state of New 
Jersey when he was eleven years old. 
"Impatience," he says, "isn't really a 
factor when you've been working on 
something for almost fifteen years." 

Even if a solo singing career takes 
longer to get off the ground than 
Chambers hopes, he's willing to wait. 
Meanwhile, there are plenty of lyrics 
and melodies to scribble in cabs and 
trains, whenever he has twenty minutes 
to spare. "If you're a musician," he 
says, "you make music whether you 
think people will want to listen or not." 
Chances are they will. El

These distinguished young literati comprised the 
1893-94 editorial board of Brown's earliest student 
publication, the Brunonian. Begun as a literary 
magazine in 1829, by the late nineteenth century 
it had become a biweekly compendium of campus 
news and editorials. It was last published in 
February 1918.

Warren E. George '64 



Pro bono hero 



At its August 7 annual meeting in Chicago, 
the American Bar Association presented 
Warren E. George, an environmental litiga- 
tion partner in the San Francisco law office 
of McCutchen, Doyle, Brown & Enersen, 
with one of four 1995 Pro Bono Publico 
awards. The award recognizes lawyers who 
"enhance the dignity of others through 
improving or delivering volunteer legal 
services to our nation's poor." 

The award came on the heels of George's 
\ictorv last year in a federal ruling banning 
the use of the gas chamber in California. In 
the decision, a U.S. District judge ruled that 
execution bv gas chamber was cruel and 
unusual punishment, and therefore uncon- 
stitutional. George was part of a group of 
attorneys who brought a class action suit in 
1992 on behalf of death row inmates at 
San Quentin. 

In\'olved in pro bono ser\'ice for more 
tlian a decade, compiling over 1,000 unbilled 
hours in 1994, George is an advocate, men- 




tor, and pro bono recruiter in his 238- 
attornev firm. In 1994, George received the 
California Bar Association's pro bono ser- 
vices award for his prisoner's rights work. 
This fall he's in\'olved in a case that seeks 
equal access to prison programs for dis- 
abled inmates under the Americans with 
Disabilities Act. 

In 1982 he super\ised a pro bono class 
action civil rights case against San Quentin 
prison, which challenged medical and psy- 
chiatric care for prisoners. George pre- 
pared the case for trial and negotiated the 
comprehensive settlement agreement. Fol- 
lowing a breach of settlement agreement 
by the prison, he was successful in having 
the court appoint a special master to o\er- 



see compliance, which has led to system- 
wide improvements. 

According to an article in the San Fran- 
cisco Recorder, George's interest in prison- 
ers' rights began just after Cornell Law 
School, when he staffed the university's 
then-new prison law project to help indi- 
gent prisoners at Auburn State Prison in 
New York. 

George joined McCutchen Do\le in 
1974. His first indigent-appellant appeal 
case was unsuccessful - the prisoner's 
first-degree murder con\iction was upheld. 
But, George said in an interview published 
in the San Francisco Daily journal, he "got 
an idea of what San Quentin was like in 
the process. That first case helped me later. 

"Before the appeal of the gas chamber 
case, I had not worked in the death penalty 
area," he added. "I went into it thinking 
that capital punishment was wrong, and 
1 came out of it thinking more than e\er 
that it was wrong."

Banking on it 



According to Teri Williams-Cohee, she and 
her husband, Kevin Cohee, could have 
invested their money and lived a happy life 
in New York. Instead they put Si million 
into the Boston Bank of Commerce, the 
area's only black-owned bank. "We view 
this as a significant way to give back to the 
community," Williams-Cohee told the 
Boston Globe in a recent article. 

The couple's in\'estment is the largest in 
the bank's thirteen-year fustory. "It brings 
capital to a bank that was always undercap- 
italized," the bank's president and chief 
executive, Ronald Homer, told the Globe. 
Williams-Cohee, who became senior vice 
president in charge of marketing, and 
Cohee, who became the bank's chairman, 
are playing a major role in day-to-day oper- 
ations. The bank's management ranks had 
been thinned by recruiters from large re- 
gional banks, which are looking to improve 
their own minority-lending programs. 

After receiving her M.B.A. from Harvard 
in 1983, Williams-Cohee went to work for 
American Express, where she became one 
of the company's youngest vice presidents 
and marketed Amex's Gold Card to 1 mil- 
lion new members. (The Boston Bank of 
Commerce, she savs, plans to market its 



residency at Walter Reed, and Rose is at home 
with the boys. Thev xvere delighted and 
proud to see that Hanna Rodriguez-Farrar 87 
won an alumni award. "It was very much 
deserved. Now if she would only move to 
Washington, D.C., and do some babysitting."

portion of the charged sales will support 
charities.) 

In 1991 WiUiams-Cohee left her posi- 
tion at American Express and, with her 
husband, who worked at Salomon Broth- 
ers Inc., purchased Military Professional 
Services (MPS), a company that marketed 
credit cards to military officers. Under 
them, MPS managed S40 million in credit 
card receivables. The couple later sold a 
major portion of the company's portfolio 
to First Chicago Bank and used some of 
the proceeds to invest in Boston Bank of 
Commerce. 

Wilhams-Cohee has big plans. "Our 
x'ision is to become the largest and most 
profitable African-American-owned finan-

to create a national network of customers 
which supports the economic develop- 
ment and empowerment of African-Amer-

Celebrating Commitment to Brown ■ Chancelor's Council ■ Nicholas Brown Society 53 




With his $10-million commitment, W. Duncan MacMillan '53 

cleared the way for construction to begin on the new undergraduate 

sciences center for the teaching of chemistry, geological sciences and 

environmental sciences, to be known as MacMillan Hall. A $5-million 

gift from the Starr Foundation brought the total pledged for 

this new academic facility to just over $20 million. Brown parents 

Cynthia and Dennis Suskind P'95 and Diana and Stephen 

Goldberg P'89 '96 made significant gifts to support two other 

top-priority academic facilities projects - the conversion of Sayles 

Gymnasium into classrooms and the renovation of Carr House 

for the English Department.

With her substantial gift to the Brown Annual Fund, Deborah A. 

Coleman '74 was among those who accounted for a surge 

of gifts from alumnae, who increased their giving by fourteen percent 

over last year's totals. Nancy L. Buc '65, Jane Fagan Donovan 

'50 P'85 '87, and Margaretta Stone Hausman '69 also 

made significant contributions to the Brown Annual Fund, helping 

the University fund its highest priorities. The number of donors 

who contributed to the Brown Annual Fund at the level of 

$1 ,000 or more increased last year to 1 ,449. Brown salutes 

the financial leadership demonstrated by all of these philanthropists.

COLLEGE HILL 
SOCIETY 

The generosity of College Hill 
Society members is fundamental 
to helping maintain the excellence 
that places Brown among the 
nation's finest universities. 
The Society recognizes those 
individuals who have provided 
for Brown through bequests 
of Si, 000 or more, or through 
life income plans. Such planning 
benefits successive generations 
of young men and women who 
pass through the Van Wickle 
gates.

Finally. 

By Nornicin Boucher 



Into the woods 



Last night brought the season's first 
snow. It amounted to a quarter- 
inch at best, but Nicole, my three-year- 
old, was wild with glee over the look 
and feel of the stuff. I couldn't convince 
her to come inside. "Come out and 
play," she pleached, and so I did, throw- 
ing and kicking the crystals and sprin- 
kling them into our hair. Then, follow- 
ing urges the Anasazi must have felt a 
thousand vears ago, we made our 
mark: footprints and letters we could 
see from the living room once our cold 
hands had driven us back inside. 

At moments like this I'm reminded 
why, after fourteen years on the same 
Boston block, I've moved to the edge of 
a 1,500-acre wildlife sanctuary deep in 
the suburbs. "Get out of the city before 
it's too late," a friend had written a few 
months before. A New Hampshire natu- 
ralist, he was concerned my feel for 
nature would atrophy, undernourished 
in a world where electric light out- 
muscles starlight, where the dazzle at 
ground level diverts attention from the 
galaxies above the rooftops. I, on the 
other hand, worried about Nicole. She'd 
become so accustomed to sidewalks that 
when she first stepped barefoot onto 
summer grass she was a year-and-a-half 
old. The sensation was so odd she lifted 
one foot and raised her arms. "Carry 
me," she said. 

Now she can run out our kitchen 
door and leave tracks in the snow. But 
the woods are another matter. When 
we first moved here, she and I went off 
for little hikes, picking up acorns and 
pine cones as we walked. Recently, 
though, she's resisted entering the trail 
up the bluff behind our house. If I insist, 
it's "carry me" again, and only a few 
yards into the wall of trees she wants to 
turn back. As long as I can remember, 
the woods have been my place of solace. 
Now I look around and try to see what 
my daughter sees. 




Tagging along with Nicole, I redis- 
cover dormant early memories and real- 
ize how tired my angle of vision has 
become. Suddenly she makes the worn 
and stale vivid and sharp again, an 
alchemy I need more acutely every day. 
My work nudges me ever deeper into 
a virtual world and away from a child's 
universe of physical sensations. Four- 
teen years ago I typed my stories on a 
manual typewriter and tracked down 
facts in library books whose margins 
bore the occasional Yes! of a previous 
reader. Work was still a physical thing, 
with shape and texture and weight. 

Computers have changed all this. 
Though the Rockefeller Library is a two- 
minute walk from my office, I do most 
of my research on-line. People fax me 
things instead of dropping them off. I've 
learned to solicit a quotable opinion via 
e-mail, which requires me to imagine a 
person's voice without ever having 
heard its timbre or pitch. 

This virtual world is Nicole's world. 
At the age of three she manipulates the 
mouse on my wife's computer well 
enough to design and print her own 
birthday-party invitations. She long ago 
mastered the VCR and the CD player. 



These are survival skills for the virtual 
life, but what kind of lite is it? My 
daughter hoards cold snow until it hurts 
her hands, yet she's beginning to prefer 
the animated woods of Disney's Benith/ 
mid the Beast to those outside her door. 
The smells and shadows of the real forest 
seem to awaken an internal galaxy of 
chaos and cruelty more frightening to her 
than the wolves in the video. Physical 
experience is already giving way to faux 
realitv, responding to a culture where 
nature docimientaries replace nature and, 
if we only had the know-how, we would 
take the cold out of snow. 

Fortunately, kids are bom pawing Ufe 
over, not sitting back and watching. Tlie 
trick is to keep that instinct alive in a 
world of electronic dazzle. That's why 
I've moved to the edge of the woods. The 
other night Nicole and I went outside to 
watch the stars. The moon hadn't risen 
yet, and the air was so clear the Milky 
Way was a glowing fiber-optic cable. 

"Look at all the stars," I said. "There 
are so many of them." 

A look of concern crossed Nicole's 
upraised face. "There's no room for the 
moon," she said. Yes, I thought. That's 
the problem exactlv. ED
